• Transition Test

Year 7 (2019/20)


This page is for parents of Year 7 students joining us in September.

Welcome to The Urswick School. For some of you this will be a new experience as you join our community for the first time. For others, children joining us in September will be following in a long line of family members who have been educated in this school.

Student Guides

Your child should have been given a student guide to The Urswick School.  This booklet has been designed to support your child's journey from Year 6 into Year 7 at The Urswick School.

Transition Day

We look forward to welcoming your child on Transition Day – Thursday 4th July.  Your child should wear their primary school uniform and will need to bring his/her usual school equipment (pencil case with pen, pencil, ruler, etc) for lessons.  Please provide your child with a packed lunch, including either water in a clear plastic bottle or fruit juice (fizzy drinks are not allowed).  Lunch will not be provided by the School on Transition Day but a free school lunch will be provided for all students from September 2019.
All Year 6 students will be registered at the Paragon Road entrance between 8:15am and 8:30am and Transition Day will finish at 2:45pm.  Please ensure that your child knows whether they are to travel home independently or to wait at the school gates to be collected at the end of the day.
We have an exciting programme planned and your child will have the opportunity to participate in subject lessons, make new friends and meet new teachers.  Your child will also receive a Transition Homework Booklet to complete during the summer holidays.  

Transition Evening 

Transition Evening, the Year 6 Induction Evening for parents takes place on Thursday 11th July.  The evening begins at 5:00pm.  This is a key opportunity for you to find out more about the Urswick School and to meet the Executive Headteacher and members of the leadership team.
