Year 6 to 7 Transition – September 2021 – virtual format
Our induction evening for parents/carers and students took place on Wednesday 7th July 2021 at 6.30pm – 7.30pm.
Thank you to those of you who were able to join us yesterday evening for our introductory meeting. Unfortunately some parents were unable to access the Microsoft Teams meeting due to a technical fault. A video of the meeting is provided below for you to watch at your leisure. Also located below is a PDF of the PowerPoint presentation referenced in the Microsoft Teams meeting.

On another note, it was fantastic to see all of our students on the tutor group Zoom meeting last night. We are unable to share recordings of these meeting with students who missed them due to the fact students’ faces and names appear on screen. If your child missed the Zoom session feel free to get in touch if you have any concerns/questions you need addressing before the summer break. Our school website is constantly being updated by our team so keep checking back in for updates.

Links for the Virtual Transition Day – 7th July 2021
We have planned a series of taster lessons for our year 6 students to try at home due to the induction day in school not taking place due to Covid 19. Links to Youtube have been added below. Please encourage your child to try these activities / tasters. Feel free to direct your child’s year 6 teacher to our school website and, in particular, the transition section.

Welcome to our virtual tour of the school
This picture booklet (see links below) is a virtual tour of St Hilda’s to help you get to know your new school. We also hope that you find it interesting and useful in helping you to find your way around when you arrive. It contains pictures of different parts of the school and gives you the opportunity to write on or key-in a question about each area, if you have one. Write/key-in any questions you might have about the areas shown in the pictures within the adjoining boxes and don’t forget to ask your form tutor for the answer when you start with us.
To print out the booklet and write on your questions, please click here.

The finishing touches – can you help?
Although St Hilda’s has a brand new school, we still have areas we need to develop and furnish!
Whilst we have got fantastic new facilities, the building budget was not enough to cover a lot of ‘finishing touches’ such as:
- Outdoor seating in the courtyard, along the paths and near the entrance to the playground.
- A cover outside the Library to extend our outside space and protect against the weather.
- Equipment for the Sports Hall.
St Hilda’s needs your help because…
We have no source of income from any foundation, so the Governors rely on donations from parents to fulfil their legal obligations in maintaining a safe working environment with extra-curricular opportunities for students and to help fund new projects.
