Key Stage 2 – 3 Transition
Welcome to TCS Exeter Road!
Over the last couple of years we have made some changes to our transition process and we hope you will find our programme for 2022 supportive and informative. Starting secondary school is an exciting time and important step in a child’s life and we work hard to ensure all are supported well though the process. This page contains key information on TCS Exeter Road and the transition from Primary to Secondary school. We hope you find it useful and please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have further questions.
Parents of pupils joining Y7 in September 2022 should now have received two welcome letters.
You can view a copy of these here:

Across our website you will find lots of information about life at TCS, from curriculum and homework details, to detailed policies on safeguarding. To support our new parents, we also have a Y6-7 Transition Parent Handbook which contains an overview of the key information you will need such as timings of the school day and uniform requirements. Please read it carefully.
We recognise that the transition to Secondary school can seem daunting to some pupils (and parents!) and we work hard to support pupil welfare through the process. If you would like some wider independent support the following links contain some valuable resources for both parents and children:
The Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families offer lots of useful advice to families on a variety of topics but their specific school transition guidance can be accessed here: annafreud.org
There are also some excellent resources on the BBC website that can be shared with children and include celebrities offering tips and advice: BBC Bitesize
