As we move further into the Spring Term, our children in Year 6 will soon be preparing to go to high school in the new academic year. This can be a daunting and exciting time for our pupils. Here, at Brierley, we would like to make the transition from primary to secondary school as smooth as possible.

For the parents of our Year 6 children who will be moving on to Ruskin High School, we have received some information for future important dates in your diaries. If you would like to view further information, please click here.

Year 6 Parents Evening- Tuesday 20th June 6:30pm

Parents and pupils are invited to come into school to meet their new form tutor, teachers and classmates. We will be able to go through what you will need on the induction days and for the first day of term. This will also be an opportunity for both you and your child to ask any questions you may have, familiarise yourself with the school and to make new friends.

Year 6 Induction Days- Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd June

Prospective pupils are required to attend both days, where the school day will begin at 8:50am. This is a great opportunity for all pupils to experience two days at their new school ready for September. The children will receive some lessons, spend time with their new form tutor and new friends, and they will get used to the dining hall and other facilities.

Year 6 Parent Interviews- Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th June

All parents of prospective pupils will be invited to an interview with Ruskin High School. This will present you with the opportunity to ask any questions you have for your child’s new teachers on a one-to-one basis; get to know the school and staff better; and, understand what Ruskin High School require ready for the first day in September.
