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

Transition Update – 12th July 2021

Due to the current circumstances, we are unable to run our transition programme as we would usually do where the pupil visit us at school for 2 days. However, we hope you find the virtual transition activities along with the Year 7 tutor messages below fun and helpful. We are also running a summer school so please click here for information about booking a space.

When you complete the transition activities, please hand them in to your Year 6 teacher and we will collect them before the end of term.
