Year 6 Transition in Hyndburn - Summer 2021

Dear Parent,

Please find attached a joint letter from the head teachers of all Hyndburn secondary schools concerning the Year 6 Taster Day scheduled for next Thursday (1st July). Click here to view the PDF.

It is with some regret that I have agreed to this approach, whilst accepting that the health and safety of the local community is of paramount importance at this time. The cancellation of Taster Day has also resulted in us putting a stop to our New Intake Evening which was due to take place next Tuesday. Please accept my apologies for any disruption this may have caused you and your family.

I am pleased to report however that visits to primary schools have been able to continue and that the section of our website dedicated to year 6-7 transition is currently being updated and refreshed. This will prove a valuable one stop shop for all matters related to St Christopher’s admissions this September.

I am also pleased to confirm that the Summer School (26th – 30th July) will be taking place as planned. We are delighted at the very large number of pupils that have signed up for this exciting week of activities and lessons. Please contact Mrs Collier, our summer school director, if you would like to register a place (

Kind regards,

R D Jones
