Transition Information from High Schools

Transition Information


This is a busy time for us in year 6 as we start to get together with the high schools to discuss transition. At this time of uncertainty, the plans for transition are still unknown but we will be working closely with all of our high schools to make sure your child's transition is as smooth as possible. We will put any documents that we are sent on this section of our class page. It is also a good idea to look at the high school websites as they have lots of information. 


Kind regards, 

Mrs Baron and Mrs Pearson

Sir John Thursby 


Due to the current situation, we are unable to invite year 6 into school; however, we have a year 6 transition page on our website which has lots of information for both parents and students.  
The page is located under the parent and student tabs on the website.  I have also attached a link to the page

A quick note from Shuttleworth


Is your child starting their Shuttleworth journey in September?  This is a message from Shuttleworth staff.


We are very excited to welcome our new children!  We can’t invite them into school just yet but we have worked hard on a transition package to help you all feel like part of the Shuttleworth family this summer. We know the current situation is hard for Y6 students and families so we will be sharing video tours, family & student guides and some exciting projects for Y6s to take part in.  Look out for a video from Mrs England - coming soon!  If you haven’t returned your new starter pack then please pop it in the post to Shuttleworth (extra copies are being posted out).  Take care!
