Transition to The Bay Secondary School


Welcome to Year 6 students and families

We have great pleasure in welcoming you and your family to The Bay CE School. We are delighted that you and your child have chosen to join our welcoming and vibrant school community. The Bay CE School is a school that will encourage, support and challenge students to be their very best and to achieve ambitious goals, both inside the classroom and within the extensive range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities that we offer.

This is a very exciting time for students as they prepare to move from Primary school to join us here at The Bay. We know that as well as the excitement they will be feeling, they may also be a little nervous. There is a team of people here at The Bay who will help students to make the transition, with a range of activities and events planned to help them settle in as quickly as possible. Students will soon be feeling right at home and enjoying the many opportunities that we have to offer.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Plested or Mr King by emailing or
