bringing out the best in boys

Year 6 Transition 2020/21

The transition process from primary to secondary is a daunting time for many, and the current situation is an additional pressure.

Principal, Miss Wicks, and the whole team are looking forward to welcoming all our new starters to the Wellacre family.

We are working really hard to make transition an extra special time for Year 6 pupils in these difficult circumstances, including an online Intake Day.  We are also proud to share photos and videos of our current Year 7 students to showcase life at Wellacre!

For any queries regarding transition, please do no hesitate to contact admin(at)
