New Intake Information

The time has come to welcome your child to Harrow Way and to give you a little more information about forthcoming arrangements to ensure a successful transition. With students coming from many different schools this year, we are busy planning our visits to the main feeders and looking at options for easing the transition for students.

Year 6 Transition Arrangements

We are delighted to invite our new students to visit us as part of our Induction Day on Tuesday 28th June 2022. Students should wear their primary school uniform. Throughout the day, they will meet their Head of Year, their tutor, experience a typical lesson and get to know our school site. More details can be found in our Welcome Pack (link below).

In the evening of Tuesday 28th June, we would like to invite parents to a short Welcome meeting in our school Auditorium. The start time will depend on your child’s tutor group. More details will be sent to parents in due course.

To ensure that transition to our school is as smooth as possible, please read our Welcome Booklet. New parents will receive our weekly E-News Bulletin and we will send vital updates via email.

If your child has Special Educational Needs and you have particular questions about the support on offer in September, our SENCO, Mrs Emma Law, will be holding a parents’ forum on Induction Day between 3.00pm and 4.00pm. Please fill in the Student Preference Form (link below) to book a place.

Year 7 Projects

Asha and the Spirit Bird – Year 6/7 Literacy Transition Project and Curriculum

Every year 6 student joining Harrow Way receives a copy of ‘Asha and the Spirit Bird’ by Jasbinder Bilan. This will be handed out on the first day of term in September. The aim is for all students to read the book and promote literacy across the curriculum. Work will be carried out in most subject areas in the Autumn term linked to the book.
