Year 7 Transition

Year 7 Transition Information – Academic Year 2020/2021

Welcome To Year 7 at TPS!

We look forward to welcoming you all on board your journey through secondary school. There are lots of exciting opportunities ahead and each of you will be part of a 210-strong year group.

Over the next few weeks, information about primary visits, uniform, induction days and more will be sent out to parents. Clearly we are in slightly uncertain times as the school closures due to coronavirus continue so the dates below and those given to you in further communications are subject to change. We will aim to keep this page updated and also to let you know of any changes via email.

We hope each and every child will be visited at their primary school by the end of this school year and you might like to make a note of the Induction day and evening events that will be happening here on Thursday 9th July. If your child attends a school where only one or two students are likely to come to The Priory School, there is also a further transition morning on Wednesday 1st July. Details about all events will follow in due course.

In the meantime, you can keep in touch with developments at the school via our website ( and our Twitter feeds (@TPS_Hitchin and @TPS_Transition). If you would like to start exploring uniform purchases, please visit the Beat School Uniform shop in Hitchin who supply us.

Once again, welcome to our school community. We will be in touch soon with further details about what happens between now and September.
