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 work hard to ensure that you feel comfortable and settle in well.

Staff from our Student Development Team work closely with your primary school so that we can learn as much about you as possible before you arrive. We will help you settle in quickly with people you know and we are sure that you are also looking forward to making some new friends that will become friends for life.

We would love to get to know you better so take a look at the ideas below and write a letter to Mr Cunningham, complete our survey, send us a collage about yourself and apply for your Lakes School Badges!
