Year 6 Transition Important Update

As a school, we appreciate that many parents will continue to be concerned about the impact Covid-19 and government guidelines will have on the transition for Year 6 pupils. Due to social distancing and ‘bubble’ restrictions, we are, unfortunately, unable to offer our planned Induction package. This is a unanimous decision across all the Secondary Schools in York and no other school will be offering a July transition day. The safety of all our students, families and staff is of utmost importance to us. However, we feel that it is important that students have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Archbishop Holgate’s values, the school environment and staff, and still have the opportunity to ask questions and gather important information.
