Year 6/7 Transition - Welcome to Year 7 at St Damian's

We hope you and your family are well and looking forward to joining our special school community. As you aware, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, ‘Transition Day’ for Year 6 on the 2nd July has unfortunately had to be cancelled. However, we are still preparing as normal for their arrival at St. Damian’s in September. We have worked closely with primary schools to ensure that we have the most up-to-date academic and pastoral information. 


Over the coming weeks, we will facilitate a ‘virtual transition’.  Below are the details of what you can expect and when:
