We have an extensive transition programme in order to enable students coming to College to feel supported, confident and able to succeed.  We recognise that moving to secondary school can give rise to concerns and lots of questions.  We hope to provide you with the information you need to help you prepare for this important phase in your child’s life.  We are available to talk to you should you need to know anything else.  We welcome the opportunity to show students and parents around the College.

Year 6 – 7 Parent’s Meeting

We would like to invite you and your child to meet their Head of House, tutor and other key Launceston College staff on Thursday 12th July 2018 time TBC.

On this evening you will be provided with an induction pack.

Mrs Sarah Rowland, KS3 Pastoral Support, will be contacting all primary schools to exchange relevant transition information before the induction arrangements start.  If you have any particular questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Rowland on the main College number (01566 772468) or via email

Year 6 induction meeting (outside catchment)

Students who are joining Launceston College from outside our normal catchment area will be invited to attend the 2 induction days on 16th and 17th July 2018. Students will also be invited to join us for an extra transition visit to Launceston College during the summer term (date to be confirmed) Mrs Rowland will write to you directly if this is applicable to you.

Year 6 Transition days

Students will visit and spend 2 days with us on 16th and 17th July 2018 in order to begin to acquaint themselves with their fellow students, teachers and the College site (we will take photos and do thumbprints on these days in preparation for September).  We ask that you return the admissions forms to us on this day (these will be in your induction pack).

Some students will make extra visits to College depending on their individual needs.

Year 6 Summer School

Launceston College Summer School will run this year from Monday 13th August to Friday 17th August 2018 for all year 6 students joining College in September 2018.

Students will take part in a different activity each day which will include English, Science, Art, Maths and take part in some adventure learning activities.

The cost for this will be confirmed.  Children in receipt of Free School Meals now, or in the past, are able to attend for a reduced fee.  This is a fantastic opportunity to make new friends and to experience a taste of subjects and activities available to you at Launceston College; letters will be sent to all year 6 students during April 2018.  Any enquiries relating to Summer School please contact on the main College number (01566 772468).

We extend an invitation to all year 5 students and parents to attend our Open Evening on Thursday 27th September 2018.

Mrs Rash will visit all Primary Schools to meet with year 5 students and parents in the Summer Term 2018, this is an ideal opportunity to hear about life at College from current Year 7 students.

If you would like to visit the College outside of this time then please contact Mrs Rash on 01566 772468 or email
