Welcome to our Transition 2020 portal.

Here you'll find lots of important information to ease the transition to Meden School over the coming months.

There are also some very important forms to complete. If you are unable to complete these forms in one sitting, then click the 'Save Forms' button at any time. This will save all the information you have already entered and send you a unique code via e-mail to be able to access it at a later date.

Your forms will be saved for 7 days from the time that you save them.

Please note that due to an admin error on the letter you have received, the tutorial information for your child may be incorrect. We will be in touch early next week to confirm the correct information for your child.

Mr J Smith
Head of School

I would like to introduce myself.  I am Mr Smith, the very proud Headteacher of Meden School. It is great that you have chosen to join us in September for the next chapter in your school career, I can’t wait to meet you!

Starting secondary school is a very exciting time but can also quite daunting for you as you transfer from a relatively small school to a larger one. Please don’t worry though because we have a fantastic Year 7 pastoral team who will help you to get to know the school and answer any questions you may have before you start here in September. Also we also have a wonderful group of students who are looking forward to supporting you whilst you settle into Meden School life.

I realise at the moment that you may be more anxious as schools are closed and this will obviously interrupt your transition programme. Please try not worry, we have developed an online platform with videos, tasks and guides to help you know more about life at Meden and who the people you need to know to make your time a success. We will ensure that your introduction to Meden School is as smooth as possible and we are all here to help you through it.

I’m really looking forward to meeting you and your family in person but in meantime, if you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Best wishes
