Transition Days and Open Evenings

Transition Days and Open Evenings

As you will have seen on the news, there is now a delay in the lifting of restrictions around COVID-19. These changes have meant that we are unable to invite you and your child into school before September for our planned Transition Days and Welcome Events. We know this will be a huge disappointment to our new students who have been looking forward to starting their journey with us. Please be assured that we are thinking of you and planning, in any ways we can, for your arrival with us to be the best it can be. To ensure that you still have the best experience possible, we have put a few things in place.

  1. You will still have transition days! They will just be a little later than expected. Our new transition date is Friday 3rd September.  More information on what to expect on these days will follow shortly so please look out for more letters from us.

  2. Throughout June and July, Mrs Gold and Ms Herbert will be visiting as many primary schools (virtually) as we can so you have a chance to meet some of your new teachers and ask questions -  we hope to see some of you soon!

  3. We have released virtual content to allow our new students to feel more at home at KTC. These have been uploaded on a special area of this website, on a tab titled ‘Starting at Kemnal - New Year 7 – Sept 2021’. Content includes items that aim to reassure and inform our new students based on our research into what the biggest worries about starting secondary school are. 

  • *A virtual tour of the site and maps and photographs of the Year 7 Block,
  • *The extra special things about KTC which set us apart from other schools,
  • *Faces to learn and what roles we do,
  • *Examples of timetables, homework and behaviour expectations
  • *FAQs from children …….and much more.

There will also be a special gift coming your way  .... we hope you like it!

We hope that this information offers you and your child some reassurance and that you can take comfort in the knowledge that we are thinking about your child’s arrival with us at KTC. We will be in touch but in the meantime, we would like to wish you and your family all the best. We can’t wait to welcome you in person.
