Key Stage 3 – Years 7, 8 and 9
We have strong links throughout the year with our Catholic feeder primary schools in York and North Yorkshire. Students from these schools make up the majority of our Year 7 intake each September. Some of our students live in villages and towns within a twenty five mile radius of our school.
Most children starting in Year 7 are visited by staff from All Saints to ensure they feel happy, secure and welcome on starting secondary school in September. Children in outlying areas non-feeder schools have the opportunity to attend All Saints with their parents on a Saturday morning during the summer term. Here they are able to meet other students and develop friendships with children in similar situations before starting at All Saints.
At the beginning of Year 7, a special Mass and social evening is organised to welcome pupils and their families to the school community. During the course of the academic year Parents’ Evenings are held in school where parents can discuss their child’s progress.
