“We are very excited to be welcoming our new intake to St. Mary’s over the next term.

The aim of our transition work is to make the move from Primary School to St Mary’s as easy and smooth for you as possible.  We want to find out lots about you and we want for you to find out lots about us.

Transition Activities

Dear New Year 7 Students,

Please find below some activities set by the English, Maths and Science Departments at St Mary’s. This work is designed to keep your mind active over the Summer Period, and give you a small glimpse into the kind of work you may do when you arrive at Secondary School.

If you choose to complete this work, please keep it safe and hand in to your subject teacher in September. Those students who try hard will receive a Transition Certificate and the best work will be commended in Assembly.

Hope you enjoy the challenge!

Mrs Holt-Naughten
