YEAR 6 TRANSFER

Due to the current situation we find ourselves in due to Covid19.  We are all unaware if there will even be a Year 6 transfer day/week this academic year. Our usual process for year 6 travel during Transfer may be different this year.  We will still gather your information and if transfer day/week happen then we will deliver the passes and time tables back to the schools. However if this does not happen we will email/post information of what service you will need for September.
