Year 6 – entrance to Year 7 September 2021

Welcome to those joining Year 7 in September 2021!

We will keep this page up to date with all the information you need on transition – please do check that you have seen all the information below!

We are so sorry not to be able to hold our usual transition days in school this year, but we have put together lots of virtual resources to help you as you prepare for September. Please scroll through the information below.

We know that you will have lots of questions, and we want to reassure you that it is very normal to feel a mixture of excitement and nerves!

Please watch the recordings below to find out more about what starting at AHS is like.

The recordings are divided into general information about the school for all of our new Year 7s, and recordings specific to your new form group. Your parents will receive an email informing them what form you will be in. We have 6 houses at AHS (Ascott, Claydon, Hughenden, Missenden, Stowe, Waddesdon). The form you are in is also your house – eg. 7A is Ascott.

If you are watching the videos at school, don’t worry if you don’t yet know your form groups, you can always watch these ones later at home.

Along with this email will be a google form for you to complete. Please make sure that you do this at home and send it back to us as soon as you can. We will then send you the information collected from all the students in your form to you, so that you can start to get to know each other.
