Hello and welcome to Simon Balle All-through school.

We know that a key part of the transition process, for students and parents, is to feel a sense of familiarity with their new setting. That is why we have created this platform so you can begin to get a sense of who we are, and how we do things here, in order to allow you to take those early steps towards feeling at home in our community.

Summer School

We are pleased to announce that, after the huge success of last year’s Year 7 Summer School, we will be rolling this out again this summer for all students joining us in Year 7 this September.

We have seen first hand the substantial impact it has had in supporting children making a successful transition, socially and academically. Therefore, we are aiming for 100% uptake this year and strongly encourage all parents to take up this opportunity for their child, if at all possible

The Summer School will take place on Monday 22nd – Wednesday 24th of August with the students enjoying a range of academic and enrichment activities.

Further details will be shared with parents as part of the transition process in the summer term.
