Transition to St Simon Stock

We are delighted to welcome you to our wonderful school. 

 

Starting secondary school is a very special milestone in anyone’s life. Your child will most likely experience more independence and learn new skills and knowledge every day. Most importantly, they will be ready to take on the modern world when they leave us.


Transition from primary school to secondary school is a very important process and we are proud of our induction programme for your child. At St Simon Stock Catholic School, we believe that preparation is the key to success and we hope that the following information will help you and your child prepare for this next stage in their academic life.

 

If you have any queries about joining our school, please don’t hesitate to contact me at sandersc@ssscs.co.uk.

If you have any specific SEND questions then please email SENCO@ssscs.co.uk
