Year 7 Transition

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you and your child in person into the Cardinal Langley family but the current restrictions mean that this is not possible. In order to ensure the transition to high school goes as smoothly as possible this year we have developed a series of videos to provide you and your child with all the information needed to be ready to join us in September.

The videos available are:

  • Parent Information – this is a short video of the key information you need to support your child to be ready to join us in September
  • Meet the Key People – this includes myself, Mrs Hatton (Deputy Head), Mrs Williams (Deputy Head), Mr McLaughlin (Head of Year 7), Mrs Lord (Special Needs Co-ordinator) & Mrs Foster (Transition Co-ordinator)
  • Meet the Form Teachers – Mr McLaughlin and the Form Teachers introduce themselves to students
  • Virtual Tour of the School – some of our students show the key areas of the school so students can familiarise themselves with the facilities

In addition to the videos, we also have our parent handbook which you should have received in the post.

The Government has recently announced that schools will be returning in September for all students and we are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students on Monday 7th September. The guidance for schools on how September will operate has not yet been released and I will contact you again before the end of term with further details.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child into the Cardinal Langley family in September and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
