Transition 2021

Transition to Pendle Vale College


We make every effort to ensure our new starters have a smooth transition into secondary school.


Due to the current restrictions we will be unable to hold our normal transition process.  All students have been visited at their primary school by our transition team.  Our normal transition days and evening will now not go ahead and all the information you and your child need will be uploaded to this page.


Students will receive the planned transition days when they join us on Thursday 2 Septmber 2021.  However there is an opportunity for them to come into school by joining one of our summer school weeks.  


Summer School – click here to register the deadline for summer school applications is Friday 2 July.

Resources to support your child


The transition to secondary school is a big moment for any child but during these unprecedented times, pupils may feel anxious or unsure about what is to come on their journey to Pendle Vale College. The following resources have been created to prepare Year 6 pupils for the transition to secondary school.  
The resources (below) are part of theBe Awesome, Go Big‘ package, a project from PiXL Club and Hachette Children’s Group, to help Year 6 students transition into Year 7. It can be used by students and parents at home or in school with teachers in class and is designed to be motivational, helpful and reassuring to help young people feel valued, loved, encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead.
These resources are only to help and guide your child. They do not have to complete all of the tasks, but if they wish, they can work through each interactive lesson, recording their answers in the accompanying workbook. A copy of the workbook has been posted home to each of our new Year 7 students. Please enjoy working your way through these resources
