Year 6 Transition (Student Page)

Welcome To Unity College

For Year 6 Students

We are doing our best to make sure that you do not worry about starting at Unity College. Some of you will be nervous, after all you may only have visited the college on our open evening.  It is natural to feel a little nervous, so to help you we have put a great deal of information on our website for you and your parents to read so you can get to know how the college works and the types of things you will be doing when you start at Unity College. 

There is a page for your parents (here), but this page is for you.

A letter for you from the headteacher – Letter to Year 6 students

Have a read of this document from one of our current students about what life is like at Unity College – School day diary.

A couple of our current year 7s have written about how they’ve felt in their first year at Unity – this is from Rowanne and this is from Hollie.

Our year 7 transition buddies are ready to answer your transition questions, just send them an email and the buddy team will get back to you –

Departments have provided tasks for you to try before you join us. 

These are not compulsory but completing them can make your transition to Year 7 work a little easier.

Any you do complete can be brought with you on your first day at Unity and handed to your PD tutor.
