Year 7 Admissions, September 2021
The transition between primary and secondary education can be a daunting time for pupils and parents alike. At Cirencester Kingshill School we do our best to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible.
Our Head of Key Stage 3 visits all the primary schools in Term 5 to meet the children in an environment they feel at ease. Pupils are then invited to spend time at the school ahead of their September start.
Year 6 Induction - provisional details
All pupils with a Year 7 place at Cirencester Kingshill School for September 2021, will get to spend two days with us in the Summer Term. Subject to the goverment restrictions in place at the time allowing these days to go ahead, the planned dates are Thursday 8th & Friday 9th July 2021. Prior to this, pupils will have been assigned their tutor groups so when they come for their induction days they are able to meet and start bonding with their new classmates as well as getting to know their Tutor and Head of Year. Pupils even get the chance to travel to and from school on the bus. This time is invaluable in helping allay any concerns parents and pupils may have ahead of their September start.
We will also hold a Parents’ Induction Evening to help prepare parents for the change and to give parents a chance to meet the Headteacher, Head of Key Stage 3, Head of Year and your child’s Tutor. The current planned date for this is Wednesday 30th June 2021.
The deadline for entry to Cirencester Kingshill School in September 2021 is Saturday 31st October 2020. In September 2020 the local authorities will send out information via your child’s school explaining how to apply for a secondary school placement. Please contact us if you would like any advice about your application or to arrange a mutually convenient time to come and see the school.
Open Mornings July 2021
We are currently hoping to be able to hold Open Mornings for prospective pupils and their families to come and see the school in action for themselves on the 5th, 6th & 7th July 2021. These dates are provisional at this stage and will be subject to the government restrictions in place at the time, allowing such events to run. Please keep checking back here for more details and confirmation nearer the time.
