Moving Up Information


My name is Eddie Rollett and I am one of our Assistant Headteachers at Noadswood School and I oversee moving up at Noadswood School. I hope that you are all well, we are busy reaching out to your children's schools to arrange visits for after half term. This will allow us to welcome them to our school and to answer any questions that they may have. We are aware, that moving up to secondary school is a significant milestone. We are committed to ensuring that we support your child throughout this process. 

I'd like to draw your attention to our dedicated 'Moving Up' website, this has much of the key information that you need and we'll be updating this throughout the summer term.

Within this are some key dates for your diary:

Transition Evening - 06/07/2022. We'll be writing to you nearer the time but this an evening specifically for parents and carers. On this evening, we'll talk to you about important details for new families and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions.

Moving Up Day - 07/07/2022 and 08/07/2022. Pupils will join us for two dedicated 'Moving Up' days. They'll get to meet their head of year, tutor, and experience lessons at Noadswood. We are aware that this date clashes with the Wildground residential trip and we will be in contact to arrange an alternative date for Wildground pupils.

Summer Camp- 25/07/2022 and 26/07/2022. You may re-call that last year the government provided funding for all schools to host a 'Summer School.' Whilst that funding is no longer available, we felt it was such a valuable experience, we'll be hosting it again this year.  This is a completely free event and a fantastic opportunity for year 6 pupils to meet new friends, experience our school, meet our staff and pupils. Pupils can attend one or both days, but we please ask no half days. Each day they'll ​rotate around 3 fantastic opportunities, the timings are below:

9.00am - 9.20amArrival
9.20am - 10.35amActivity 1
10.35am - 11.00amBreak

If your child would be interested in attending our Summer Camp, please do complete this form no later than Friday 6th May. We'll then be in contact with parents nearer to this event (click here).

Summer Camp

Year 7 First Day of School: 02/09/2022. When your child joins us in September, they will have a dedicated year 7 day without the rest of our Noadswood students within school. They will spend the day with their tutor, have a tour of school and experience some lessons. 

We will be in contact in the coming weeks with regards to uniform. We will be sending you a data form to complete, this is so we can ensure that we have all of the relevant information that we need prior to your child attending.

I hope that you have a wonderful bank holiday and if you have any questions please do get in touch.

Best wishes,

Eddie Rollett
