Preparing for Secondary School

Preparation, as we all know, is the key to success and as families you will be wanting to get your child prepared.

Firstly, please make sure you have returned your acceptance slip and the forms which were sent to you in the post. They are crucial in registering your child at school and enabling us to provide timetables and access to the school catering system:

  1. Student Information Form
  2. Beckfoot Trust Student Privacy Notice
  3. Mymetro Bus Pass application (if appropriate) and post to the address shown on the form
  4. Download the MyEd app to your phone (

The designated section on our website for parents should direct you to all aspects of our school life that you will need to be familiar with ranging from school meals, uniform and bus routes.

Please do also spend time with your child looking at our student section. There is a designated ‘Preparing for Secondary School’ area.

There are also some Transition activities which we would like students to have a go at, ready for their September start:
