As mentioned in the Transition Day letter above students will be given an 'All About Me' transition booklet when our colleagues visit them in their primary schools. Visits are taking place throughout June so please do not panic if your daughter does not have one of these yet! If she was given one on her visit and this has since been lost, you can download and print one below or alternatively collect one from our reception team but please be assured visits are continuing right up until the week of transition day and a hard copy will be handed to them!
