Year 6 Transition

Welcome to the Year 6 transition page. Here you will find links to lots of information about John Ruskin School and a data collection sheet for new starters.

Many of your questions are likely to be answered during the Year 6 induction day and evening at the end of the summer term, which this year will be on Monday 25 June 2024, but if you do have any queries at any time, please email

See the Parents page of the website for links to;

the online uniform shop. Uniform is available for students to try on during the Year 6 induction evening at the end of the summer term. When you order uniform, you can choose for it to be delivered to your home address or to John Ruskin School, from where you can collect it. Please check delivery times with the supplier.

Information about school lunches. Please note that we recommend credit is added to a student lunch account online, although we do have a machine in school which can collect cash. Payment for food is cashless, with a record being made at the tills of food purchased and the cost being deducted from a student’s account balance.

School Gateway – make an online payment. An account for a student is only activated once they have officially transferred on to our register. For those starting in Year 7, this is 1 September. This means you can only make payments to a Year 7 account after 6th September in the year in which they start at John Ruskin School.
