Cheney School

Cheney School

Primary Transition

Welcome to all Year 6 Students (and their Parents & Carers) soon to be joining the school.

Here at Cheney School, we have designed a thorough Transition programme for all new students, in order to make their start at Cheney as smooth as possible. Many of the students joining us will have already had an opportunity to visit the school already, as part of the many events we invite primary students from our local community to. These include a special visit by Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman, Ancient Athens Day, and a special performance of Alice in Wonderland to name a few.

We regularly update this page with our planned Transition events, and include all the information students and parents need to know when starting here. We also have a list of frequently asked questions which you can read below.

As a school, we are deeply committed to encouraging independent inquiry and learning; we also specialise in archaeology and the classical world. We are the only state school in the country to have our own museum which is part of the Arts Council Accreditation Scheme, and we are working to embed learning about objects from the past across our curriculum.

  • Induction Days are on Thursday 29 June and Friday 30 June. These two days will help your child find out more about Cheney School and will help ensure the start of the new term and the school year is a really positive one.
