Welcome Year 6
We strive to make the transition from Year 6 to Bilton School as smooth and positive as possible for new students and their parents/carers. During the Summer term, we aim to meet every young person at their primary school to introduce ourselves and start to get to know them individually. We also liaise with their primary school teachers and collect information which aids us when allocating teaching groups. Students are invited to two induction days when they will take part in various activities and sample lessons to allow them to get to know us and us, them. For 2017, the induction will be held on Monday 10th July and Tuesday 11th July from 8.50am to 3.20pm each day. Students should arrive at school at 8.40am on both days to go to Kay Hall next to the main school reception.
In addition, there will be a meeting on Tuesday 11th July from 6pm – 7.30pm in the Hall for parents/carers and students to meet Form tutors. This will take the form of short presentations from Mr Samra the Executive Headteacher and Mr Gleghorn the Head of Year 7 and will be an opportunity for students to spend some time in form rooms with their form tutor. Members of our PTA will also attend the evening and will be happy to talk to you about the valuable work they do for the school and how you can become involved. We cannot wait to meet all parents, carers and pupils!
Year 6 Big Read
On induction day Year 6 will be issued with a copy of The Goldfish Boy - a brilliant novel that everyone will enjoy. It's simple: read the novel, complete the review postcard and bring the book and the postcard back to school by Christmas and hand in at the library!
