Year 6 Transition to Backwell School
We are delighted that your child will be joining us here in Year 7 at Backwell School in September 2020.
Due to the current school closure period, and social distancing measures currently in place, we have created this dedicated webpage containing useful documents and information to help parents and children through the transition process.
We appreciate that moving to secondary school is an emotional time - children will feel excited to meet new friends and experience new lessons. It is also normal for children to feel worried or nervous about this move and our Year 7 Team do their very best to ensure all students are supported and welcomed into life at Backwell School.
