Year 7 Transition Evening 2020

Welcome from the Head of KS3

We are so sorry that once again another opportunity to meet our Year 7 parents has passed and we have been unable to invite you into Malton School and have the opportunity to speak to you face-to-face about your son or daughter’s transition from Primary School.  We can hardly believe that our new Year 7s have been with us nearly half a term and are so pleased with how they have settled and adapted both to being at secondary school and to being here under Covid-19 conditions.

On this page you will find a series of introductory videos from key members of KS3 staff.  These videos serve two purposes:

  1. To provide you with the information you would have been given at the Transition Evening
  2. To answer as many of your questions as possible

If having watched the videos, you have any further questions, do please contact us.  In spite of the current restrictions, please rest assured we are very much here to help you and your child.”

Head of KS3
