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. 

May/June:  

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.

If you have admissions queries for years 7 - 11 please contact
