Year 7 Welcome Information

Year 6 into Year 7

A very warm welcome to Kings Langley School!

Your child will be joining Year 7 in September.

Please check on the link below for biographical details of the current (2023/2024) Year 7 team - Form tutors

Form Tutors

Important information about your child's transition from Primary School to Secondary School can be found on this website as and when it becomes available so please keep checking.

Most young people making the transfer from a smaller primary school to a larger secondary school have anxieties about the changes but also positive anticipations about the new opportunities. Please check out the current Year 7 biographies. We provide support for the transition as outlined in the timetable below.

From the first day that your child starts school with us, you should refer to the Pastoral Year 7 section of this website. Everything that is sent home to parents or has relevance to Year 7 students will be posted there.

We ask that students are picked up from Kings Langley School at 12.40pm. We are sorry that we are unable to arrange transport. If you are happy for your child to walk back to Primary School or to walk home after this event, please sign the consent form in the pack. Otherwise, please collect your child promptly at 12.40pm from the school’s main hall. Please indicate on the reply slip the arrangements for picking up your child.

Summer School -

At Kings Langley School, we offer a week of summer school for our New Year 7 students to support their transition into secondary school alongside a series of other events. This is offered to all students and is always in the final week of the summer holidays, so that it leads beautifully into the new school term.
