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 11th July 2019 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 15th and 16th July 2019. 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 15th and 16th July 2019 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 2019
Launceston College Summer School will run this year from Monday 12th August to Friday 16th August 2019 for all year 6 students joining College in September 2019.
Students will take part in a different activity each day which may include English, science, art, maths and 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 2019. Any enquiries relating to Summer School please contact us on the main College number (01566 772468).
