Year 6 Transition

Welcome

We are very sorry that once again, due to COVID-19 restrictions not being lifted, we were unable to hold our Transition Days in school in July 2021. HOWEVER – on this page you will find some useful videos and documents that should have helped prepare you for life at Ripley St Thomas.  We hope that you are excited now you have started and we have been thrilled to finally meet you all!
