Year 6 transition (including Taster Day)

The transition from primary to secondary school is a big step. There's more about how we make the transition as smooth as possible in our Key Stage 3 curriculum page.  The Key Information from our Transition Event can be found at the bottom of this page.

We are excited and looking forward to having your sons join our Outstanding Academy from September for a wonderful,  exciting and rewarding journey. We are a caring community building future leaders where everyone succeeds and achieve their potential regardless of background or any personal characteristics. 

 It would have been our delight to have you on site but due to Covid-19 and in order to comply with Government guidelines and in line with the protocols we have in place at the Academy to protect our staff, students, and our community,  we very much regret that we were unable to run our on-site Taster Day or the on-site Parents’ Information Evening for the students who will be joining us in September 2021.  However, we are putting together a programme of virtual events that will be both informative and enjoyable for both parents and students.

If you have any questions, please email us at transition@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk.
