At Settle College we know some students (and parents!) will feel apprehensive about transition to secondary school.
We will be updating this page as we approach transition, with useful information for our incoming students and their parents.

We’re really looking forward to meeting you!

2022 Summer School final details – Details from last year


Summer School:

We are delighted to announce we will once again be running our popular Summer School for year 6 students in summer 2023.

This is a valuable opportunity run by our own staff, allowing our prospective Year 7s to meet new friends, familiarise themselves with the school site and some of the staff, and ask questions about what to expect in September. Students can choose to attend specific days if they don’t want to commit to a full week, although we often find that they enjoy themselves so much, they end up asking to stay!

Information around how to book will be shared with year 6 parents soon.

Here are some letters written by Year 6s about their experience at Summer School:

New Year 7 Open Evening - 5th October 2023 from 6-8pm


Sixth Form Open Evening - 16th November 2023 from 6-8pm
