Children at Lyng Hall playing the piano


Transition from Primary School to Lyng Hall:

Lyng Hall works closely with its feeder primary schools creating a close relationship even before the pupils start. Year 6 students follow a transition programme which allows them to reflect on their experiences at Primary School. This can include Powerpoint Demonstrations, Creative Writing, Art, Drama or Poetry. Students bring this work with them to Lyng Hall when they start and present their experiences in a celebration with other Year 7 students. We further support our new intake families by holding personal interviews during the summer term before they start (date below) giving parents and pupils the opportunity to discuss any issues or concerns they may have and it gives us the opportunity to share information and news.

Lyng Hall welcomes all students on their first day with a fun and inspiring programme designed to introduce pupils to their tutors and designated member of staff.

Important dates/information for Yr 6 students commencing at Lyng Hall in September 2020:

Induction Day – This is a very special day when all Year 6 students in Coventry have the opportunity to explore their new schools, see their classrooms and meet up with their new teachers. Students should wear their Primary school uniform and bring trainers for a PE lesson in the afternoon. Lunch will be provided free of charge for all year 6 pupils on this day, but alternatively, they can bring their own packed lunch if they prefer. They will be met by staff as they come into school. The day will end at 3pm.

Individual Meetings – You will be invited to come in for a short meeting with a member of our staff to discuss your child’s transition from Primary to Secondary School and to go through all the paperwork and information about Lyng Hall.

New Academic Year – During your child’s first week at Lyng Hall, you will receive a phone call from a member of staff, letting you know how your child has settled into secondary school life. There will also be a Parents’ Evening in the first half term for you to meet with your child’s form tutor for a general discussion about the work they have completed so far and the progress they have made since joining us.
