Primary - Secondary Transition

Welcome to our primary/secondary transition area on our website. This page is for all students who are joining the Poly in September 2021 and their families.

We understand that this time is uncertain for all, but particularly for those children moving from primary to secondary schools this year. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can behind the scenes to plan for a smooth transition for your child. We work closely with all primary schools to gather as much information as possible about the children coming to us. This is something that we would usually do, and this has not changed.

We are continually reviewing our transition process and we are hoping that we will be able to run face to face meetings with you in the Summer term. We will be adding a transition timeline at a later date to give you an idea of next steps in this exciting process.

Please check back to this page regularly for updates, and please bear with us at this uncertain time. If ever you have any questions, please give the school a ring or email us at

We hope that this reassures our new students and their families. We can't wait to welcome our next year group into the Poly! Stay safe and take care. We will see you soon.
