Rising Year 7s

Information for Year 6 Transition (Sept 2022 Starters)

We understand that starting secondary school is a very exciting time, but also one that can be a bit worrying for students, as well as their parents. At St Birinus School, we aim to make the transition process as smooth and enjoyable as possible, by working closely with the students, their parents or carers, and the primary schools. This helps all those involved to feel excited and confident about joining the SBS community.
