For those students joining us in Year 7 in September, these dates form our intensive transition programme to ensure the process is both enjoyable and informative:
Primary School Visits
During May and June, senior staff from The Spires College will visit each student who is joining us the following September.
28 June 2017, 6-8pm. This meeting for students who will be joining us the following September and their parents/carers will provide general information about the college, its curriculum and pastoral arrangements. Senior Staff and the Head of Year 7 will be available to answer any questions which may arise. You will get the opportunity to meet your child’s tutor.
6 & 7 July 2016, 8.30 am - 2.40 pm at The Spires College. All of the students who have a place at The Spires College for the following September join us for two action-packed days of learning and fun. Students will experience a wide range of lessons, explore the college site and, importantly, meet lots of new friends.
Additional Transition Day
July (date to be confirmed), 8.30 am - 2.40 pm at The Spires College. This is for any students that may have missed the transition days on 7 & 8 July 2016.
Transition Support Day
June (date to be confirmed), 8.30 am - 2.40 pm. This is an additional transition day for those students who may need an even more in-depth induction.

The purpose is for students to:
- Meet their year group and make new friends at The Spires College
- Become more familiar with the college and staff
- Be more confident about starting in Year 7
- Begin to get into the habit of learning after a long break
- Have fun!
