Year 7 Transition page
Welcome to Harris Greenwich
Congratulations on gaining a place at Harris Academy Greenwich from September 2021. We are delighted to welcome you and your family to our school community and are very much looking forward to meeting our new cohort of students.
We recognise that starting a new school can be both an exciting and challenging time for students and parents/carers. Our priority throughout the transition process is to ensure all students who will be joining us in September are fully prepared, to provide families with the information they need to support their children and to enable our new cohort of students to start a new and exciting journey at Harris Academy Greenwich.
Key dates for your diary:
- 28th – 30th June 2021 – Interviews
You will soon be invited to attend an interview that will take place at Harris Academy Greenwich. A senior member of staff will speak with both student and parents/carers. This will be a time to talk through the school Code of Conduct and ask any questions you may have.
- 14th July 2021 – Induction Day
Our new year 7 cohort will be invited to attend an induction day that will run from 9.30am – 3pm and students will be expected to wear their primary school uniform.
A huge part of transitioning to secondary school is having the opportunity to build a community with their fellow pupils by making new friends, forging relationships with teachers, familiarising themselves with their new school environment and emotionally preparing for this next chapter.
- 23rd – 27th August 2021 – Summer School
We know the pandemic has been particularly tough on this group and we want to seize the opportunity to prepare them academically, socially and emotionally for the next stage of their education. Please ensure you have clicked the link that was previously sent out and complete the online form. If the form is not complete, your child will not be able to attend the Summer School.
Please do have a look through the information on this page and get in touch if you have any questions.
We look forward to meeting you in September!
