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.


Please be assured that we will try and keep as many transition activities and process as 'normal' as possible, but we have made a few changes this year due to the COVID- 19 pandemic. We will keep parents fully informed and updated over the coming months.

We appreciate that moving to secondary school is an emotional time - children will feel excited to meet new friends and experiences new lessons. It is also normal for children to feel worried or nervous about and our Year 7 Team do their very best to ensure all students are supported and welcomed into life at Backwell School.  

Welcome email sent to all new Year 7 parents on 1 May 2020.

Welcome pack of information for parents (including tutor groups and uniform expectations).

Essential information online form - for all children joining us in Year 7. Please ensure this is fully completed by 3.00pm on Wednesday 13 May.

Out-of catchment school transport. Form for families to apply for school run and organised transport to school (this is not required for those living within our catchment area, for example Yatton, Cleeve and Claverham).
