Welcome to the Gildredge House Year 7 Virtual Transition
Due to the current climate, we are not able to run our usual transition programme. Therefore, we have been working hard at creating a virtual transition programme for you all to enjoy.
New Head Teacher Welcome
<insert DSI wording>
You can also watch the welcome messages from subject staff and take a virtual tour of the school on the Year 7 Transition page.
You will find transition resources that mirror our usual Year 7 Transition Day activities below; work your way through the taster lessons, and look at the PSHE resources focusing on transition. We have carefully created all of these resources to help ensure you feel comfortable and ready when you join our school in September. We can’t wait to meet you all in person and we hope you enjoy your virtual Year 7 Transition!
The following taster lessons are provided in different formats; documents are available in PowerPoint or Word format which can be edited electronically or, for those students who do not have access to the Microsoft Office suite, documents are also available in PDF format which can be printed and written on by hand. Once you complete the taster lessons, you can either bring them with you to school in September, or you can email the completed documents to the relevant Teacher before school starts. You will find the Teachers’ email addresses below each taster lesson.
