We understand that the transition from primary school to secondary school is a very important stage in a child’s education. For that reason, Beckfoot Thornton offers a comprehensive Transition Programme for all children joining the school.


We offer all Year 6 students coming to Beckfoot Thornton the following transition activities:

  • Induction day is focused on helping Year 6 students to make friends and settle in. Students will meet their form tutors, fellow classmates and heads of year. They will take part in activities aimed at supporting them to feel comfortable and helping them to mix with the students in their tutor group.
  • The two Transition sessions offer more informal taster sessions in PE, Science and Technology.
  • The Parent Information evening will enable parents and students meet the year team and members of SLT for a 45 minute presentation.
