New Parents Information for Year 7 Students Starting September 2021
On behalf of staff and Governors, I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our College. I want you to know that I will do everything possible to provide your child with a high-quality education for at least the next 5, and hopefully, 7 years. I am looking forward to working with you in these years ahead to ensure that your child benefits from not only a first-class education, but also the many other exciting opportunities which the College has to offer.
As I am sure you will understand, the current COVID-related situation is making it difficult to plan with any certainty our transition arrangements for Year 6 students and I will therefore let you know after the Easter holiday details of our transition day for the students, opportunities for parents to have a first or further tour of the College and the date and time for our New Intake Parents’ Evening.
In May and June staff will be contacting and, if possible, visiting the feeder school of every child who has been allocated a place at Collingwood as well as talking to all the class teachers. We will therefore know a significant amount of information about every single individual before we meet them on the transition day.
We are determined, despite the current difficult circumstances, to provide your son or daughter with the very best transition arrangements possible to ensure they have a seamless and successful start at Collingwood in September.
We are currently over-subscribed, so if you are unable to take up the place that has been reserved for you, please let us know immediately so we can offer the place to another child.
The Collingwood Experience from Our Students' Perspective
Transport Information for Year 7 Entry
For children processed in the normal admissions round for entry into Year 7, Surrey County Council Admissions and Transport team automatically assesses home to school transport for each child after the initial allocation of school places. If your child is entitled you will hear from SCC by mid July in the year of admission. You should not complete an application form before that date, as this can cause unnecessary delay to the assessment process.
If you think your child may be entitled and you haven't heard by mid July, please contact SCC.
