Year 6 Parents and Carers

Dear Parents and Carers,

This part of the website contains resources that we hope you will find useful during your child’s transition form their primary school to AGGS.

Although we do not yet know exactly what every aspect of school will be like in September, we are planning the reopening of school in detail and will ensure that the transition to secondary school will be as safe and easy for your children as we can possibly make it. We will also communicate any changes to procedures to their parents/carers as soon as we can. Any information of this sort will be sent to email addresses that you have provided us with, so please keep checking your inbox.

Ordinarily, we would offer an Induction Evening in early July, but unfortunately this has been cancelled this year. In its place I am pleased to offer you the below video and slideshow which cover all of the content you would normally receive during the evening.

In addition, please read these two short documents which summarise some of the most important information ahead of your daughter joining us in September:

Year 7 Booklet for parents, Equipment list and Uniform information

Our Head of Music, Miss Mayall, has prepared a PowerPoint which would normally be shared in our Music Induction Evening. It outline the full range of musical activities going on at school, including instrument lessons which you can arrange for your child. If this will be of interest, please complete the below application form and return to school by email ( or by post to the school address as soon as possible.

There is plenty of further information across the school website, including the Year 7 section [put link here] and we have also put together a section of the website with information and advice that your daughter can look through Year 6 Students Page.

If you have any further queries or concerns, please contact me via the school admin email address:
