Year Six - VI

Thank you for considering The Lakes School as your choice of secondary school. Making the step from Year 6 in to Year 7 can be quite daunting but we will do our best to ensure that you feel comfortable and settle in well. Why don’t you write a letter! Many Year 6 children have written a letter to Mr Cunningham, the Headteacher of The Lakes School. You can tell him about your hobbies and interests and your thoughts about moving to The Lakes School. Mr Cunningham always writes back so put pen to paper today! Our Transition Co-ordinator, Mrs Storton, works closely with our local primary schools and she will be pleased to hear from you should you have any questions about The Lakes School.
Got a Question? Then email Year 7!
We are a team of Year 7 students who have been trained to answer questions that you might have about coming to The Lakes School and we would be keen to hear from you. We are here to help so please get in touch. Don’t worry about a thing, just email us with your questions. Our email address is below. Y7ask@lakes.cumbria.sch.uk
The work you do at your primary school is so important as it will help you get off to a flying start when you join us in Year 7. We are particularly keen for you to keep up the high standards you have achieved with your writing which is why we ask your teachers to send us a copy of your best writing. Your teachers at The Lakes School will then be able to make sure that your are continuing to use all of the writing skills your amazing teachers have taught you in your primary school. They will also be able to check that you are maintaining high standards in the way you present your work. We look forward to reading your amazing pieces of writing.

 

Below is a short video from our Transition Disco on October 8th 2015. Thriller always gets them dancing and you can see our Sixth Form Dance Leaders modelling the moves. This was a lovely evening supported by our Sixth Form students who are always keen to look after younger students. Thank you to all of the Year 5, 6 and 7 students who came for a boogie.

During the summer, a large number of Year 5 students came to visit The Lakes School for the day. We gave them a postcard and asked them to write about their day and send it back to Mr Cunningham. Click on the tabs to find out what they said about their visit.

Dear Mr Cunningham, Thank you for inviting me to The Lakes School taster day. It was fantastic! I really enjoyed baking. I think I might come to The Lakes School.

I love The Lakes School. Thank you again. Alexander
