Transition: Year 6 to Year 7

Hello, my name is Mrs Sally Fox and I am delighted, as Head of Year 7 for the 2019/20 academic year, to warmly welcome both you and your daughter to our community here at Torquay Girls’ Grammar School. 

Making the move from primary to secondary school is an exciting milestone in any child’s education, but I am very aware this transition can invoke a mixture of emotions for your daughter and yourselves. I would like to reassure you that the Year 7 tutors and I, in conjunction with Mr Chris Charlwood (Deputy Head – Lower School), will be working closely with you to ensure that your daughter remains happy and secure during this change into secondary school life.

As Head of Year 7, my primary objective will to ensure your daughter really enjoys her first year with us - learning effectively, making great friends and being as fulfilled as possible! This applies not only to the classroom but also through her becoming an active member of the school through positively engaging with the fantastic range of extra-curricular activities that are available, from science and music clubs, to sporting activities. I will be your daughter’s Head of Year until the end of Year 9, at which point our aim is that all our students will have an excellent attitude to learning, allowing them to succeed academically in order to realise their potential and follow their dreams to GCSE level and beyond.

I look forward to working alongside you to support the education, personal development and well-being of your daughter, as she progresses towards young adulthood.
