Welcome to STA in 2022!
This is a dedicated section for our year 6 students and their families. We hope you find it useful as we move towards September 2022. We would also encourage you to join our New Starter's Facebook group where you will be able to ask questions and meet some other soon-to-be St Andrew's members. Click here to access St Andrew's: New starters - 2022.
The first step of joining St Andrew's family is to complete the transition paperwork. Please take some time to complete the forms on both links below - this will take approximately 20 minutes.
Starting secondary school may seem like a daunting and an overwhelming experience but we have a number of events planned to help ease students into life at St Andrew’s. This will commence with our first live Welcome & Information evening, held on the evening of Wednesday 16th March. Here you will get to meet myself, as well as some other key members of the School Leadership Team. On this evening you will also receive further information to support you through the transition process.
A couple of key dates for your diary are:
Transition interview; phone call with a member of Senior Leadership – (individual/group appointment times TBC if requested)
Welcome & Information evening for families (on site) – Wednesday 16th March – 6:30pm–7:30pm
Year 6 parents information evening (parents only) – Monday 27th June – 6:30pm–7:30pm
Year 6 transition day (students only) – Wednesday 6th July
Summer fayre (students and parents) – Saturday 9th July – 10am–2pm
We are also aware that some young people need more bespoke support when they experience change. Our SENDCo (Mrs Stewart) and our new Head of Year 7 (who is coming to post in September) will be jointly running additional sessions to support individuals. These sessions will be invitation only, and further support will be added for individuals where appropriate.
Wednesday 11th May - individual meetings and activities
Wednesday 25th May - small groups
Wednesday 15th June - individual meetings and activities
Wednesday 29th June - small groups
In the meantime, as a new St Andrew’s student, we would love to involve you and your family in our summer fayre at which you will meet new classmates, tutors and the Head of Year. We are proposing this will run on Saturday 9th July, 10am – 2pm.
Below you will find welcome videos from Ms Lowney, Headteacher and Ms Goss, Assistant Headteacher - Primary Transition.
Welcome to the STA family, it's great to have you here!
