Welcome Year 6 to

Bishop Ullathorne Catholic School

Dear Year 6 Student

We are really looking forward to welcoming you into our Bishop Ullathorne family. We know that under the current circumstances you may be feeling unsure about your next steps into secondary school. Rest assured that we will do all we can to look after you when you arrive and ensure that you have a great start to your secondary school life.

Whilst we are unable to hold our Transition Day again this year, we have different activities planned to help you prepare for this change, including a Form group Zoom meeting and a week long summer school, which is very exciting. 


Please know that we have been communicating with your teachers to find out all about you and we hope that this web page and the Transition booklet you have been given helps to answer many of the questions you may have.  

Please check the links below with your parents.  Here you will find activities for you to try from different departments. The T-Shirt Activity gives you the opportunity to create a unique piece of artwork all about you and we look forward to seeing this on your first day at school. There will be a prize for the five best examples that we see. 

In the meantime if you have any questions in the coming weeks please look on this page or contact us on the email address below and we will do our best to answer any questions that you have.


Stay safe and continue to do your best for your Year 6 Teachers and parents.
