It is our pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the Deyes community. We hope that the next 5+ years are all that you hoped they would be. Joining Deyes means extending your family to include all of the students, staff and professionals that make our school community so special and so successful.
We understand that starting secondary school is a vital time for students and their parents/carers. We work hard to ensure students have a smooth transition to us from their primary schools, and that they feel happy and confident about starting a new chapter in their lives.
Students join us from many different primary schools and we make every effort to ensure that they have the opportunity to become familiar with all things Deyes. We would usually invite pupils to visit Deyes for a taster day and welcome parents/carers to a transition evening in order to meet key staff and ask any questions you might have. As we are in unprecedented times, we are offering a virtual alternative during the lockdown period. We have updated our website with additional information for you to work through together in order to introduce you to what you can expect from September. We hope you find the website useful and informative.
In addition to this website, a series of welcome packs will be posted home to each of you. These packs will include information for both the young people and the adults.
Perhaps the most important item amongst the pack is the ‘Preparing for Deyes’ student book. This has lost of information and activities which we would like you to work through and complete over the Summer then bring in with you on your first day. We can’t wait to see them!
Finally, we would like to invite you all to a virtual transition event at the end of June. This will replicate the face to face experience as much as possible……….exciting details to follow soon!
Please click on the images below or follow the menu links and spend some time exploring our website, digesting the information packs and engaging in the virtual experiences. If you still have any questions or queries after all of this then please feel free to email our specialist transition team on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to meeting you all very soon. In the meantime, stay safe and well
