Transition 2023

We can't wait to welcome our new Year 7 students and their families to The Bridge, our exciting Year 7 provision. The Bridge provides an outstanding transition experience from primary to secondary school. Pioneered by The Futures Trust over eight years ago, The Bridge has received praise from Ofsted and leading educationalists for its groundbreaking Year 7 provision. Whereas Year 7 students tend to experience a dip in academic performance on transfer to secondary school, The Bridge delivers consistently accelerated academic progress along with unrivalled pastoral care and transition experience. The Bridge has previously been highly praised by Ofsted.

These are exciting times and our new Year 7 students will have much to look forward to. Transferring to become part of The Futures Trust, a highly successful local multi academy trust has meant that we have embarked on a significant period of positive development. The Futures Trust has an outstanding reputation for developing good and outstanding schools, and we are now actively working with colleagues across the trust to ensure outstanding academic outcomes for our students.

All our new students will receive a specially designed Welcome Pack through the post, which will introduce our Year 7 professionals and share useful information in preparation for joining us. When our new Year 7 students join us in 2023, we will have become 'The Hinckley School' and our new 2023 Welcome Pack will introduce students and their families to this new identity. We will be in touch regularly to share more information regarding our transition events, as well as information and support to get students ready for their first day with us. This online transition page will also feature all our letters, links to important forms and event information. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with The Bridge Team - 01455 632183  We look forward to welcoming you to The Bridge!

The Bridge Summer School

We have great pleasure in sharing with you plans for The Bridge Summer School 2023. This will go ahead in the week commencing 21st August – 24th August with sessions running daily from 9:45am – 2:45pm.

Our summer school will provide opportunities to support your child’s transition and love of learning. The Bridge Team will deliver a programme of activities that blends enrichment experiences with academic sessions. Summer school will provide a perfect opportunity for our new Year 7 students to gain confidence and build relationships with their peers and staff alike. Students will be able to acclimatise to their new surroundings and enhance their knowledge and understanding of The Bridge curriculum in a fun and supportive environment.

The programme will run on site at The Hinckley School and is offered free of charge to you and your child. It is not compulsory for your child to attend, and you can book as many days as you wish, all we ask is that students attend for the full day selected. We recommend that students come to school with a packed lunch, including a drink, and suitable clothing to take part in a mixture of both indoor and outdoor activities.
