Year 7 Transition 2020

This page is dedicated to our new Year 7 cohort that we look forward to welcoming into the Fitzalan community from September 2020. We know that this is not the way that you had imagined starting secondary school but all of us at Fitzalan are dedicated to ensuring that your first day of high school is still a positive and memorable experience for you and your family. We will continue to post all things related to transition for both pupils and parents on this dedicated page. Remember that you can use the translate feature (the globe on the top right of the website) to translate everything into your chosen language. Please email if you have any questions. 

It is really important that we have a completed admission form from you as soon as possible. You will receive a link from the school to the email address you used to apply for the place with Cardiff Council during the week beginning 8th June 2020. Please contact the school if you would prefer a paper copy sent to your home.
