Year 6 Transition

We are delighted that you’re considering Theale Green for your secondary school – more families have chosen us every year for five years in a row, which makes it a very exciting time for our school!

We’re holding our open evening on Thursday 28th September, so please do come along and find out what makes us so special. Click here to book your family’s ticket.  Most of the spaces at our presentations are sold out now, but please do select the entry only option to come and look around, or book for one of our open mornings in October on 3rd, 6th and 10th.

We know that the transition to secondary school can be daunting for some children, so we’ve prepared some information and resources to help you and your child understand what will happen when. We’ll be adding more information, including our popular transition map and quizzes, as we go through the year.
