Year 5 & 6 Transition Camps
At Tanfield School we have many minds but one mission: to get students to attend the best university, or real alternative, succeed in their dream job and thrive in all aspects of their life. We value the importance of a smooth transition from primary to secondary school and recognise that it is a big step for students and parents. As such, we aim to provide a wide range of opportunities to enable students to feel at home quickly; to settle into our academic and social environment and to feel part of the Tanfield community.
Tanfield School has an excellent induction programme, which starts in Year 4 and includes a variety of
activities ranging from open evenings, online transition events, STEM challenges, school tours and a 3-day
transition event. To further help students prepare for the move to secondary school, we have developed a
number of ‘Team Tanfield’ One-Day Transition Camps. Transition Camps are open to students in Year 5 and 6.
Our one-day camps are bookable now and will run during the last two weeks of the summer break:
- Day 1: Tuesday 23rd August - Year 5 only - 10am - 3pm
- Day 2: Wednesday 24th August - Year 5 only - 10am - 3pm
- Day 3: Wednesday 31st August - Year 5 only - 10am - 3pm
- Day 4: Thursday 1st September - Year 6 only - 10am - 3pm
Day 1-3 are for current Year 5 students only (starting Year 6 in September) and Day 4 is for Year 6 students only (students joining Year 7 in September).
Please note: Due to the limited number of days and the high demand for places, we are limiting camps to one day per child. Registration is open from 9:45am.
If you would like your child to attend, please complete our short registration form below and select your preferred day. We anticipate a lot of interest and places will be given on a first come, first served basis. Lunch will be provided by our catering provider, Aspens. Alternatively, your child can bring a packed lunch. There is no charge for attending.
