Year 6 Welcome to KHS
Dear Year 6 Parent/Carer/Student
Welcome to KHS! Your transition to ‘high school’ has started. We are really looking forward to meeting you in the future and welcoming you into our community. Whilst this isn’t the usual transition, we want to make sure you feel as prepared and as reassured as possible before joining us in the new academic year. Remember, all Year 6 students will be in the same situation you are in and we must all work together to ensure you have a great start to your time at Kesgrave. We hope that you are excited for the new opportunities secondary school will bring and are ready for this new journey with us. It really is a special place to be and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.
This part of the website is dedicated to you and your transition, so keep checking back here for updates and videos.
