Welcome from Mrs Twist

Firstly and most importantly, I hope that both you and your families are keeping safe and well. In these challenging and uncertain times, I hope that this special area of our website will reassure
you that we are doing everything we can to make sure that your move to secondary school is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Although it might sound strange, some things haven't changed at all! It remains to be the case that we are delighted that you have chosen St Cuthbert’s as your secondary school and we are excited for you to experience what school life is like here. Unfortunately, however, it looks very likely that we are going to have to make some changes to our calendar
of transition events.  If you have older siblings or if you have looked at last year's information on our website, then you are probably already aware that we normally offer the following:

  • Year 6 Parents’ Welcome Evening at St Cuthbert’s
  • Year 6 Parents/Carers and students individualized meeting with a member of the Senior Leaderships Team at St Cuthbert’s
  • Induction Days at St Cuthbert’s

As schools in England are currently closed and the lockdown period unknown, it is likely that some or all of these events will be affected. Where possible, we will be changing
the format of the sessions so that disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.

You can find all of our current and upcoming plans on this section of the website as well as in a weekly personalised newsletter sent to your parents' or carer's personal email which will include:

  • A warm welcome to you from Mrs Twist, Headteacher of St Cuthbert's
  • Introduce you to your Heads of Year 7
  • Introduce key and important members of the Year 7 team
  • Find out who your Form Tutor is and virtually meet them
  • Use our special 3D Map to navigate around the school and find key areas and classrooms
  • Receive a St Cuthbert's special-filled bag which will help you be ready for when you start with us in September

I hope that these updates are helpful for you and we will continue to keep you informed as things progress. In the meantime, I wish you all the best as you continue to adapt to these changes. I hope also that you stay safe and well.   

Mrs C Twist
