Important Dates

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.  

Transition Evening

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.

Transition Days

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!
