Year 7 - September 2021

We are delighted to welcome our incoming Year 7 students and their families to our vibrant and supportive St Aloysius' College community.

We have a robust transition process which seeks to ensure students are reassured and excited about starting the next chapter of their educational journey. Through this process we aim to also learn more about our incoming students so that we are best prepared to support them as individuals both pastorally and academically, giving each child the strongest and most supportive start to their secondary education.

Below is an outline of they key stages and events within our transition process. Full details will be communicated to parents via email, please do ensure you check your emails regularly.

Welcome Evening - Thursday 20th May 2021 at 5pm

The first of our transition events is a welcome event for all parents and students. During this presentation you will meet key members of staff and learn about all aspects of school life, including; term dates, timetable, school uniform, and parent apps.

In line with current guidance this event will be virtual via GoogleMeet. Further details including access information and meeting links have been emailed to parents. For anyone who is unfamiliar with GoogleMeets, we have put together detailed instructions:

If you will be using a phone or tablet device AND do not have a current Google account (gmail, GoogleDrive, etc), you will need to set one up. Please be aware this could take up to 20 minutes, and we recommend you complete this process in the days before the Welcome Event. Please see further instructions below if this applies to you:

One-to-One Meetings - Monday 14th June 2021

This is an opportunity for you and your son to meet with a member of our Senior Leadership Team to talk about becoming a member of the St Aloysius’ College community and ask any questions you may have. The meeting will be in the style of an informal interview, and as a school we will take this opportunity to learn as much as we can about your son so that we can support him fully at this exciting time.

You will receive your individual meeting times and any access links or further information via email towards the end of May.

Induction Day - Thursday 1st July 2021

This event enables students to spend a school day as a St Aloysius' College student, where they will meet their new teachers and peers, get to know the layout of the school and learn more about their secondary education at St Aloysius’ College.

All students are required to attend their Induction Day. Primary schools are aware of this Induction Day date and supportive of the transition process.
