Year 6-to-Year 7 transition
We know that the transition from primary school to secondary school is one of the biggest changes you will have experienced. We also know that it is one of the most exciting changes that you will make.
Moving to secondary school provides you with an opportunity to learn interesting new things, make more friends and to take part in activities that could well lead you to a particular study or career route.
We always look forward to welcoming our new Year 7s, and we'll be providing some resources on this page to help with your transition to Regent High School. Remember to check this page from time-to-time to look at the resources and to get to know Regent High School.
Most importantly, start to think of all the exciting things that await you at your new school, and what you will do to be as successful at Regent High School as you can.
Our transition programme
Our transition programme consists of five key elements that help us to be as ready as possible for our new students in September. We want to ensure that transition is as smooth, fulfilling and successful as possible.
- Year 6 teachers and SENDCos put together information for us about each pupil coming to Regent High School.
- Our transition team visits every school to talk about the pupils coming to us.
- Parents/carers complete an online enrolment and induction process.
- Pupils will be provided with a range of online orientation activities, including a virtual Induction Day. This replaces the face-to-face Induction Day that we are not able to hold this year.
- Year 7 students start before all our other students in September to help them with settling in and meeting more staff.
We have a dedicated transition team who will work with you, your families and your primary schools to get ready for you starting in September. The team comprises:
- Mr Harrison, Director of Community Engagement. Mr Harrison works with all of our primary schools and leads the transition process each year.
- Mr Shahid, Head of Year 7 and Associate Senior Leader. Mr Shahid is excited to be leading Year 7 in September and will be trying to get to know as many pupils as possible.
- Mrs Driscoll, Assistant Headteacher and SENDCo. Mrs Driscoll looks after students who need additional support in school.

Welcome Session for students
It was absolutely terrific meeting our new Year 7s on Wednesday 7 July, albeit virtually! Thank you to them all for joining us online today, and to our primary colleagues for helping the students to get online.
Wishing all of our new students a fantastic end to Year 6!
All of our new students are invited to attend our summer school, which will run from Monday 26 to Friday 30 July.
If you would like your child to attend the summer school, please call us on 020 7387 0126 or email email@example.com. Remember to tell us your child's name and current primary school when you contact us.
Take a tour of your new school
Students from our current Year 7 have created a short film to show you inside your new school. Watch the film to find out about the subjects we teach and where the lessons take place.
Advice from our current Year 7s
Our fantastic current Year 7 students have provide loads of advice to help you to settle into life at Regent High School. Take a look at their advice to help you with your first few weeks in your new school.
We want to get to know you, to know what you find interesting, what you can do, and what you want to get out of your time at Regent High School.
We have set you a series of activities to do over the six weeks of the summer holiday. They will help you to think about your first day in September, as well as to share with your tutors what makes you special.
We don't mind if you do the activities on this Word document, or use paper and pens, as long as you take some time to complete the activities ready for September.
Parents and carers should have received e-mails from Operoo asking you to verify your account and giving you access to our online enrolment portal.
If you haven't received these e-mails, please check your spam folder first. If the e-mails aren't there, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7387 0126.
