Cleeve School

TransitionS Programme


MAY:  Transition Pack 1

Your Secondary School transition pack will be sent home prior to May half term.  These are despatched through our local primary schools or sent directly to your home address by post.  Your pack will include an Application Form to be completed and returned to us by the end of June.  It will also include a link to our Student Guidebook which will help you and your child to prepare for the start of school.

JUNE:  Transition Pack 2

This will include important information about how to set-up digital accounts for your child, including school dinners, our electronic payment system and how to access useful items like locker bookings prior to September.  Transition Pack 2 will be distributed by email.

End of JUNE:  Deadline for the return of your Application Form. 

Guidance on how to complete the form can be found here.

JULY:  Induction Days

Your child will be invited to Cleeve School for two days to join our current Year 7 students.  They will have an opportunity to meet other students within their Tutor Group and College, and to experience some lessons within core departments.  

We ask that all students make their own transport arrangements to and from school.  Students should wear their primary school uniform and should also wear trainers/sports footwear on both days. 

Food & Drink 
Hot school dinners will be provided for every student on both induction days, free of charge. This is a great opportunity for them to sample the fare of our school catering team.   If you prefer your child to have a packed lunch, please provide one for them.  Please also ensure that your child brings a water bottle with them and that any relevant allergy information has been shared with the school so that we can cater for your child.  This is included in your Admissions Form. 

JULY:  Parents Information Evening
All new parents are invited to join us at the Information Evening where you will be able to attend a presentation with our Head of School (KS3) and the Year 7 Team.  You will also have the opportunity to meet some of the Year 7 Tutors, Pastoral Team and other Year 7 parents/guardians.  View the new parents' presentation here:

SEPTEMBER:  First day of school for Year 7 - Welcome!
The first few days of school are attended by only our Year 7 and Year 12 students.  This helps our new students have time to orientate the school site before the other students return later in the week.  We look forward to seeing you in September.
