Rising Year 7 Transition

A very warm welcome to all our new rising Year 7 students!

We understand that starting secondary school is a very exciting time, but also one that can be a bit worrying for students, as well as their parents. At Didcot Girls’ School, we aim to make the transition process as smooth and enjoyable as possible, by working closely with the students, their parents or carers, and the primary schools. This helps all those involved to feel excited and confident about joining the DGS community.

Please find below an outline of key transition dates for the September 2024 intake. Further details of our transition events will be sent to you should your child be offered a place.
