Transition

Dear Parents and Carers,

Hello and a very warm welcome from Eltham Hill School. I think it is safe to say this was not the transition we were all expecting, however, I am writing to reassure you that we have flexible plans in place to ensure your daughter/ward has a smooth, informative and exciting transition, despite the disruption caused by the Coronavirus.

Over the next three weeks we will be giving you information to help with transition to Eltham Hill.

All of the information will be posted on this website.

Hello Year 6 Students,

To help with your transition to Year 7 at Eltham Hill School we have made a video for you.  It tells you about a day in the life of an Eltham Hill student and will help you learn more about your new school.  We hope it will also remind you of your previous visits to see us.

Please remember that due to the partial school closure, there are not many students in the school, apart from our key worker students, so it is looking a little empty in the video!  We hope our short film will reassure you and help you get ready for your Year 7 adventures.

We are really excited about you starting with us and we will send you more details over the next few weeks.

You can view our video using this link.

Dear Year 6

Please find a video that Hope in Year 7 has made for you. This video gives you lots of top tips about homework. We know homework is a big difference from primary school and lots of you worry about it, so we hope this will help ease your worries and you can start to get prepared ready for September.

Role of a Form Tutor

Dear Year 6 

We know there are lots of changes when you come to secondary school and one of them is a form tutor. Ms Pollard, one of our Year 7 form tutors, has made a video for you explaining what a form tutor is.
