Year 6 into Year 7 September 2021 Information

Thank you for choosing Hounsdown School as the secondary school for your son/daughter starting with us in September 2021. We look forward to welcoming you to our school. Here you will find all the information you need for joining us.

We will be working closely with the primary and junior schools to support students from Year 6 through to their arrival in Year 7.

Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time of life but for many children it can also be a daunting prospect. A new, much bigger school can offer greater independence, and a world of opportunity. However, it also means new teachers, new subjects and potentially a whole new set of friends.

We very much look forward to welcoming your son/daughter into our community and working in partnership with you.

Starting Secondary School, a new campaign aimed at 10 to 12 year olds, their parents/carers and teachers, shines a light on the great potential of starting afresh in secondary school and also offers practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.
