Gilbert Inglefield

Transfer Day

We are really pleased that your child will be joining Gilberts in September. We’re looking forward to starting the next steps in your child’s education together.
We’d like to invite your child to two transition days, on Wednesday 6th July and Thursday 7th July to help them understand what middle school is all about and meet their new classes.

Here is information about the Thursday transition day:

Arrival and departure times
  • 8:45 am please arrive at the main gate entrance (next to the Youth Centre). Staff will be there to meet your child and guide them to the hall for their welcome assembly.
  • 3:00 pm please collect your child from the same place..

Your child will need a packed lunch. If your child is entitled to a free school meal, your lower school should be able to provide a packed lunch.
If your child requires medication at school during these days, please hand it to the main office clearly labelled.

Your child should come to school in their current uniform.

Parking is extremely limited and we recommend that where possible you walk to school. There are some spaces behind the Music block.

What happens during the day?
There will be a range of activities, tours, example lessons and lots of opportunities to get to know their new classmates and how middle schools works. It will also give them an opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any concerns they may have.
