Year 6 to 7 Transition





To students and parents who have already decided to join us at Oaklands in September 2022: 

We look forward to welcoming you to our series of transition events in summer term. To those new to Oaklands, we hope the video above starring staff and students from our school community gives you a sense of our vision and values.

The transition to secondary school is one of the most significant times in the life of a young person: here at Oaklands we place our values of kindness, community and inclusivity at the centre of our transition programme as well welcome new year 7s into our school community to begin their learning journey with us. 

Details for summer term transition events, opportunities for families to visit the school and meet some of our team, and dates for the start of autumn term will be shared here in due course.
