We know that your child's transition from primary school into secondary school is an exciting but daunting time, so our transition strategy has been very carefully planned to ensure that your child's experience is nothing but positive. We have developed a bespoke programme of events to make the transition period as enjoyable as possible, enabling children to meet their new peers and teachers and familiarise themselves in their new environment, long before their first day.
Our transition programme begins the moment your child is offered their place at Chingford Foundation School.
Our entire staff and student community is dedicated to supporting the new cohort of students as they embark on their new chapter at Chingford Foundation School. We take pride in our nurturing culture that encourages every learner to fulfil their potential, enjoy a happy and successful school experience and discover their talents and aspirations.

We work closely alongside our feeder primary schools to ensure that our incoming students enjoy a transition that is as smooth as possible. From liaising with parents and primary school teachers, to induction days and information evenings, we provide families with pastoral support and guidance, to facilitate the settling in period. As Head of Year 7, I thoroughly enjoy the role as Transition Lead as it allows me to build a rapport with students and their families, allowing me to provide the best pastoral support possible.
Our transition booklet plays a key role during the transition period, providing a reflective and thoughtful view for students and staff alike throughout the process. Alongside induction days, students are offered the opportunity to experience life at Chingford Foundation School, meet their tutors and acclimatise to their new surroundings, long before their first day.
Head of Year 7 and Transition Lead
Mr Taborda will be the Head of Year 7 for 2020-21 and will lead the year group through their five year journey to Year 11 at Chingford Foundation School.
Mr Carter is the Head of Lower School and leads on the transition process alongside the Head of Year 7.
I would highly recommend Chingford Foundation School; they offer an exceptional education for all students and encourage their personal growth and motivation. All students are provided with the best possible experience and leave the school as very driven individuals who strive to succeed.
