Transition to Tadcaster Grammar School


Welcome to the Transition section of our website! We hope that you find this page useful during this transition period. Here you will find everything you need to know to help you prepare for starting Tadcaster Grammar School in September.

Please watch our Key Staff videos where you’ll be able to hear from the Year 7 Leader and Pastoral Leader along with other key members of staff.

settling in at school

We have an excellent and well established relationships with the primary schools within our catchment area and beyond.
We have established a first class sequence of acquaintance and familiarisation visits, including dedicated transition days for Year 6 and a Parents’ Evening in July, a whole school Open Event in September and Headteacher information sessions at primary schools ahead of the evening. Members of our Transition Team visit Primary Schools to meet all our future students and their class teachers whilst they are in Year 6.
When the new Year 7 students join us in September, the transition is, for the majority, to an already familiar environment, led by the Year 7 Year Leader, supported by the Year 7 Pastoral Leader and our dedicated Transition Manager.
The high quality of data available from Key Stage 2 means that we possess considerable knowledge of new members of Year 7 when they arrive, which helps our staff to focus straight away on the learning needs of all students.
Additional transition events are offered to sole entry students and vulnerable learners.
