Year 7 Admissions and Transition from Primary School

We want to help make the start at Ralph Allen School as welcoming and positive as possible for new students, so we organise a comprehensive transition programme for year 6 pupils preparing to start at Ralph Allen School in September. 


Ralph Allen School’s transition team visits pupils at their primary schools. After this, the team spends
time allocating Houses and drawing up the tutor groups to ensure a fair mix of gender and ability.

Tuesday 30 June 2020:

Year 6 Parents' Evening, providing an opportunity for parents to meet the Heads of House, senior staff
and the Headteacher, and to learn about the ethos of the school.

Thursday 2 July 2020: 

New Year 7 Students' Day. Year 6 children with a place at the school spend the day here.
This is when they:

  • meet their tutor, tutor group and learning group for the first time
  • have the opportunity to sample some lessons
  • experience moving around the school to change classrooms
  • sample the great Ralph Allen School food from the school kitchen - lunch is free on this day!
  • begin to feel part of Ralph Allen School.
