Year 6 into Year 7 Transition Information

Joining Ifield Community College

Making the transition from primary to secondary school is a very exciting time. In order to make the transition smooth and happy we would like to help prepare parents/carers and students in the process.

We are in extra-ordinary times and we want to support your child into ICC in every way we are able to. As we approach the summer break we know that there will be many questions about starting secondary school that you will need answered

As we have not been able to offer Year 6 students and their parents an Induction programme we have put together several welcome videos and handbooks designed to provide answers to frequently asked questions. 

Miss Jackson - SENCo is available to answer your questions relating to SENCO, please email

Miss Jackson would love to get to know you before you start with us in September. Why not drop her an email to say hello and tell us a little bit about yourself,  do you have any interests and your hobbies.

Please can we bring to your attention that students are not to attend school with any ear, facial or body piercings, they are considered a Health and Safety risk. If a student comes into school wearing any piercing item, the student will be asked to remove it, regardless of when the piercing was done.

School Bags and Other Equipment

Parents/Carers will appreciate that text books are costly so it is important that each student should be equipped with a large strong bag. You are asked to ensure that it is not over-sized but large enough to take a fair number of books and A4 ring binders without bending or distortion.

Back packs and messenger bags are our preferred style.

Students are required to have pencil case to carry their equipment. This should contain a minimum of a black and a green pen, pencil, ruler, eraser and a protractor. Students can use their own coloured pencils and felt tips. Black pens are required for all written work and examinations. (A clear pencil case is required for mock and external exams only).

It is essential students have a scientific calculator for their lessons. Aurora AX-595TV is the brand we use in school.

Students can purchase pencil cases containing equipment and scientific calculators from our Finance Office at a lower price than high street prices.
