Year 6 Transition Zone










We believe that a smooth and positive transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is crucial to the start of each child’s secondary education. The aim of our transition process is for every student to move up to King’s Norton Boys’ School feeling excited, confident and cared for.

To achieve a positive transition, we feel that parents, carers, and students should be fully informed about the process. We hope that you will all find the information in our Transition Zone useful and reassuring. This information will be constantly adapted and added to over the next couple of months.

The aims of our ‘Transition Zone’ are:

  • To reassure Year 6 students about their transition to King’s Norton Boys’ School and to prepare them for secondary school life.
  • To support parents and carers and provide them with all the information they need throughout the transition process.

At KNBS, we want to get to know you and make you feel welcome right from your first day in September. There were several ‘getting to know you’ voluntary activities included in your welcome pack. Below is a selection of some of the brilliant work we have already seen – well done to you all! It’s not too late if you would like to send us any of your completed activities!
