The Transition Process
Primary School Visits
Your Head of Year from September, Pastoral Support Assistant and Student Support Mentor will meet with your class teacher to gets lots of important information about you. This will include information regarding your learning so far, who you work well with in lessons and the positive friendships you have within your school. These people will also visit you and will help you learn all about being a student in Exmouth Community College. Some of you may already have met our Assistant SENDCO Ms Tigwell. She will ask some of our Learning Mentors to meet some students after Easter.
We realise knowing which tutor group you will be in is important to you!
Here is an explanation of how we make that choice. We use all the information from your Primary School to organise tutor groups which are balanced on gender and ability. It is important students are placed in groups that help all students make the best possible progress in learning at ECC. You normally have at least one other student from your Primary School in your tutor group and if there has been a positive friendship suggestion by your Primary School, we will do our very best to accommodate that.
Your parents/carers can sign up to our Facebook page here which will have lots of useful information about transition to the College.
Our uniform is designed to present a positive image of our College, to both our local and wider community. All students in Years 7 to 11 wear uniform. To find out what you need to wear click here
