Year 6 to 7 Transition





We look forward to welcoming students and parents who have already decided to join us at Oaklands in September 2024. Oaklands offer a 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. 

Transition Programme 2024

Oaklands has an exciting induction programme aimed at ensuring that your child's transition to secondary school is as seamless and effective as possible.


See below for our transition booklet which contains key information to support you and your child during their transition to Oaklands.
