Transition Evening Presentation


Open Evening – 19 September 2019

Enjoy our Open Evening in September – This is a great opportunity to find out more about the school, our ethos and our values. Take a tour of the school site with one of our Beckbuddies, meet our staff and hear from the Head. There will also be interactive activities going on throughout the school. Most importantly, you will be able to ask our students about their experience of Beckfoot.

Tours – 2019/2020 

Tours for Prospective Parents/Carers – You’re welcome to contact Emily Wintersgill (Headteacher’s PA) to arrange a tour of the school with Simon Wade (Headteacher). We look forward to showing you all that our school has to offer. Please note, these are subject to availability of the Headteacher.

Information Evening – September/October 2019

Join us at an Information Evening at your child's primary school – senior leaders and pastoral team members visit all our main feeder primary schools in the lead up to Open Evening. We present to prospective students and their families, give you all the information you need, and answer any questions you might have. We also love to bring primary school alumni so you can hear from them about their experience of Beckfoot.

Visits from Pastoral & SEND Team – June 2020

Our Pastoral & SEND teams visit our feeder primary schools to find out more about new Year 7s to ensure that their transition to Beckfoot is as smooth and successful as possible.

This is your child's second day at Beckfoot where they will join, Year 11’s (who have their important GSCE year) and Year 12’s (who start Sixth Form). Having a partial opening for certain year groups supports a smooth transition to Beckfoot School for Year 7 students.
