Transition to Year 7

Joining the Risedale Family


Transition from Year 6 to Year 7

Jane Hailwood (2)Hello - My name is Mrs Hailwood and I am the Transition Manager and one of the Senior Teachers at Risedale School.

I oversee the transition process for our new pupils and I’m very much looking forward to welcoming your child to Risedale, to join the Risedale Family. We know how exciting and nerve-racking the transition process can be for pupils and their families and so I’d like to reassure you that Risedale School will support them every step of the way.

PLEASE NOTE: if you have not yet submitted an application for your child to attend Risedale School, please visit our Admissions page.

General Information for Parents/Carers:

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact our Transition Team at or our SEND Team at

Uniform Information:

For information and guidance on purchasing Risedale School uniform, please visit our dedicated Uniform website page.

The Risedale School uniform and PE kit is a requirement for every pupil. We do not have a specific uniform for different seasons/times of the year. We have kept our uniform costs to an absolute minimum by reducing the need for clothing items with branded logos on them. Most items are unbranded and can therefore be bought from general retail outlets (eg. supermarkets and high street shops). Branded items are listed below and are specifically marked as 'Schoolshop only as branded' these items can only be purchased from
