Year 6 into Year 7 Transition

A very warm welcome to our school.

A very warm welcome to Coopers School. We are delighted that you are joining us and are really looking forward to meeting you in September. I hope that you are excited to meet your teachers, make new friends and learn many new subjects and skill. We understand that we are living through a really strange period in all our lives and that you missed out on the exciting part of Year 6. In addition, you have not been able to come into Coopers during the summer term and we have not been able to visit you at your primary school to answer your questions although this may still change if the government changes it’s guidance. We have created this page to post information which will hope will be helpful to you and your parents. We will be updating this regularly with videos for our virtual induction, an induction booklet to answer your questions and videos introducing key member of staff for year 7.
