Primary Transition

Are you joining Earl Mortimer College this year?

Let’s face it, moving up from Year 6 into Year 7 is an important step, and a very exciting one too! It seems that one minute you are at the ‘top’ of your junior or primary school; the next minute you have moved up to a high school and suddenly you have become the smallest and youngest. Relax. You will be meeting lots of your new teachers and exploring your new college between now and when you start in September. Our aim is to make the move from Year 6 to Year 7 smooth and clear.

Your peace of mind is really important and we are sure that you will fit right in. We are looking forward to seeing you here on Thursday 27th June, 2019; we start at 8:45am. I will hand-deliver a letter to you before this date. In the evening you and your parents and carers will be here at 6pm for an important presentation and you will receive a special Information Pack too. We are really looking forward to this big day.

We’re really excited and pleased that you have chosen (or are thinking about choosing) the recently built Earl Mortimer College and Sixth Form Centre. With exam results rising and greater numbers of new students joining the College every term, North Herefordshire’s new college really is the place to be. This year we are trying something new. The college radio station, EMC Student Radio, is producing lots of short radio programmes in which students and teachers will talk about moving up. Expect to hear lots of hints and tips!

“EMC is a fantastic place to learn; there are so many
subjects and new places for the students in this incredible building.

At EMC there are many subjects Year 7s haven’t experienced before such as German and Design Technology including cooking.

When I came to visit in Year 5, I woke up, I felt nervous, but when I got to the school I felt excited. I wanted to be at Earl Mortimer College then and now

When we got on the bus I had butterflies in my stomach. When the bus pulled up outside and we got out, I felt grown up and just wanted to start at EMC straight away”.
