Year 6 Transition

Primary Transition from Year 6 into Year 7 September 2024

Welcome to the Year 6 Transition page which we hope you will find informative and helpful.  

We believe that a positive transition experience can set a child up to thrive and succeed at the next stage of their education. 

When students join Farnham Heath End School (FHES), they are starting, what we hope will be, an enjoyable and productive time during which they will make lots of friends, take advantage of varied opportunities and leave us having made excellent progress in learning, with many happy memories and well prepared for the next stage of their lives.

To make the transition to FHES as smooth as possible, we work with you prior to the students joining.  We meet the children and their year 6 teachers at assemblies in the linked partner primary schools, we invite parents and students to meet with us at the school and the children spend two whole days at FHES early in July.

Transition continues once the students join us in September with a team building day during the autumn term.  Our pastoral team will keep in touch and we will work to ensure your child is happy and confident at FHES. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at

We ask that all upcoming students complete an All About Me form by using the link below:
