Year 6 to 7 Transition – September 2022

 


Dear Parent/Carer

Year 7 Induction Day: Friday 8th July 2022

We are looking forward to meeting your child on our New Year 7 Induction Day on Friday 8th July 2022.

The purpose of the day is to formally welcome your child to St Hilda’s and to ease their transition into Year 7 in September.  During the day, your child will have the opportunity to meet with their form tutor and key staff and generally familiarise themselves more fully with the school.

Year 7 students should arrive at St Hilda’s at 8.45am. Students should be dropped off at the student entrance at the front of the school on Croxteth Drive.

Students need to be collected from school at 3.00pm. Collection is also from the student entrance on Croxteth Drive.

Students are asked to wear their primary school uniform and, ideally, should bring a packed lunch and a water bottle. Break time snacks will be provided. Students should also bring a school bag as they will be provided with some resources to take away.

 

Year 7 induction day – parental/carer information evening: Thursday 30th June 2022 (6.30-8.30pm)

We also hold a parents/carers meeting to support parents with issues/worries about transition.
We realise worries about transition to secondary school have multiplied in recent years due to the impact of the pandemic. We will share lots of important information with parents/carers at this meeting. It is also a chance to meet your child’s new form tutor and some of the key staff in school.

The following staff will be participating:

  • Mrs Code (Headteacher) and the Senior Leadership Team
  • Form tutors
  • Pastoral staff (including house teams)

Our SEND department are working hard behind the scenes to look after our students with SEND issues. Miss Millward and the team have been in touch with many parents/carers to arrange additional transition meetings/support for some of our students.

 


Uniform and other information

This page will be updated from this point onwards (27/5/2022) with essential information related to year 7 transition.

For specific information relating to uniform requirements and how to order, please see the Uniform and Appearance section at the foot of this page.

At present we are making some changes to our uniform. With budget in mind our uniform supplier has sourced a new blazer. The new blazer is cheaper than the old one.  There are also some tweaks to the PE kit.

Our uniform supplier will be able to advise parents with regards to uniform availability. We expect new items to be available in June. Samples are available in store for sizing. Parents/carers can order with the stockist directly. It is advisable to visit the St Mary’s Road shop as they will be holding the samples. The London Road shop may not hold any samples for newer items.

I realise some parents/carers are keen to purchase uniform early to avoid a late rush. At this point in time it may be advisable to wait until June. We will advise parents once items such as the new school blazer is in stock.

The official stockists for St Hilda’s are:

Trutex @ Liverpool Schoolwear
298 St. Mary’s Road
Liverpool
L19 0NQ
0151 345 3797

Trutex @ AMJ Schoolwear
48/50 London Road
Liverpool
L3 5NF
0151 709 7009

One final point to mention is year 7 students will be starting school on Tuesday September 6th 2022. The school building will open at 8.00am on this date (breakfast can be purchased from our canteen). Students must be on site by 8.30am.

 

Yours faithfully,

Mr J. Martin
(transition coordinator)

STOP PRESS!

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.
