Year 6 Transition

Students » Year 6 Transition

Welcome to the Year 6 section of the Malmesbury School website.

We've moved the resources to their own separate page to keep everything nice and easy to find. For all resources, guides and further useful information for the transition period they can be found here.

It has always been really important to us that the children joining our school feel ready for the new challenges of secondary school and arrive feeling excited about all the opportunities on offer. Many of our students join us from smaller primary schools, so we know that coming to a large secondary school can seem rather daunting, and we want you to feel as confident as possible about this important step. 


A student perspective: Year 7 so far...

Dear Year 6....Advice from our current Year 7's offering their insights and advice about starting at Malmesbury!


In normal circumstances, staff from Malmesbury School visit the primary schools and talk to the Year 6 students and their teachers as part of the transition process. Since the schools have closed, staff have been communicating with the Year 6 teachers via email and phone, so that side of things has been covered, but we wanted to make sure that we made contact with Year 6 students too, and that is the purpose of this section of the website.

Below is a PowerPoint presentation like the one you would have had in a school assembly, and some videos to introduce different things about Malmesbury School. At the end of the PowerPoint it invites you to send us any questions you might have about the school, so look out for the details of how to do that.

Also make sure you watch the short video below, from Mr Moreton, who’ll be starting as our new headteacher in September.

Useful documents can be found in the attachment box on the right hand side with information such as school uniform information and what peripatetic lessons are available with more being added as the page expands.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you to Malmesbury School and we hope you stay safe and well.
