Year 6 to 7 Transition

Year 6 to 7 Transition

Preparing for Secondary School

We are delighted that you have chosen Netherhall School for your child’s secondary education.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we regret that we will not be able to run our usual Induction Days for Year 6 students this year.  I hope parents and pupils will understand our decision.

However, we are doing as much as we can to engage our new cohort and prepare them for life at Netherhall.  The fortnightly Transition Newsletters (see below) provide lots of useful advice and information, including a guided virtual tour of the school and messages from our current Year 7 students.  

Our faculties have prepared some activities, giving you a taste of what you will do when you join us.  To access these activities, click on this link:

Admission Documents

Order school uniforms online, direct from our supplier, Sportswear International.  For more information please read this Direct to Parents guide, or contact the Finance Department if you have any questions.

Please be aware that before you can buy the Netherhall school uniform you will need to know the house your child will be in.  We are in the process of allocating Year 6 pupils to houses, and once that has been completed we will inform you via email.  Those children who already have a sibling at the school will be in the same house as them, so if you are in that position, you can go ahead and order a uniform now.  In the meantime, we thank you for your patience.

WisePay - our cashless payment system

The Netherhall School operates a cashless payment system, and we know you will appreciate the many benefits this system brings to students and parents.
