Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition to John Taylor High school

The Induction Process

It is our aim that by the time each of our Y6 pupils starts in September, they will feel fully prepared and excited about starting at John Taylor High School. There are numerous activities planned for the students and for parents.
