Year 6 into Year 7 Transition 2021-22 - St Mary's and St John's CE School

Year 6 into Year 7 Transition 2021-22

Dear Parents/Carers,

Congratulations on securing a place at St Mary’s and St John’s Church of England School.

We are delighted that you and your child will be formerly joining our SMSJ family in September and we are very much looking forward to working with you throughout your child’s secondary school journey with us. You are joining a unique school with an established legacy of success. 

Our children are better positioned than ever before to meet the new challenges faced by society. How they meet these challenges, how they bring about change will ultimately be up to us working together.

They will not embark on this new journey alone and they will be reassured knowing that ‘…with God all things are possible’. We are confident that we will prepare them for a journey which will be filled with Wisdom, Service and Hope.

In place of the planned Live Transition Event this Thursday we are sending your Admissions Pack directly to you. It begins to outline some of our expectations and hopes for your child’s future, as well as discussing the practicalities involved in the transfer from primary to secondary school. It should be read alongside a series of visits to the Transition section of our website, designed especially for Year 7 students.

This can be found at: Year 6 into Year 7 Transition - St Mary's and St John's CE School (

Within your pack you will find everything you need to know about SMSJ, from arrangements for the start of term to the timings of the school day to information about our Commitment to Learning.

The first day of term for our year 7's is Friday 3rd September 2021 starting at 8.40 a.m.

Please do not hesitate to contact our school admissions at for any additional queries you may have concerning your child’s transfer to secondary education and we will do our very best to help you.

I am hopeful that we will be able to meet in person at our Welcome Evening event on 15th September 2021.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Martin Serrão
