New Intake

Year 6 into Year 7 

A very warm welcome to Kings Langley School!

Your child will be joining Year 7 in September 2017.

Important information about your child's transition from Primary School to Secondary School can be found on this website as and when it becomes available so please keep checking.

Most young people making the transfer from a smaller primary school to a larger secondary school have anxieties about the changes but also positive anticipations about the new opportunities. We provide support for the transition as outlined in the timetable below.

From the first day that your child starts school with us, you should refer to the Pastoral Year 7 section of this website. Everything that is sent home to parents or has relevance to year 7 students will be posted there.

New Year 7 students should arrive at the school’s main hall for 9.15am.   To avoid congestion in the car park, please drop your child off and leave the site immediately. Primary School uniform should be worn on this occasion. At 12.00pm we have arranged a lunch provided by our caterers. Students are asked to contribute £1, payable on the day. We ask that students are picked up from Kings Langley School at 1pm.  We are sorry that we are unable to arrange transport.  If you are happy for your child to walk back to Primary School or to walk home after this event, please sign the consent form overleaf.  Otherwise, please collect your child promptly at 1pm from the school’s main hall. Please indicate on the reply slip the arrangements for picking up your child.
