Primary to Secondary Transition

Welcome to Mangotsfield School’s Primary Transition Page

We are incredibly excited to welcome our new cohort of students to Mangotsfield School and are looking forward to meeting the class of 2021!

An initial letter has been sent to parents/carers of all students who have been offered a place at Mangotsfield School and, once this has been accepted, we will send further information and advice on how we plan to support you on your journey to secondary school.

This section of our website will be updated regularly with information for our new students as well as activities that we have created to prepare you for your exciting future at Mangotsfield School.

Please check back here regularly and, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on the email address below.

Virtual Open Event:

Open evenings are a wonderful way to experience a school environment but in lieu of that this year we have put together a series of videos for you to watch in your own time, in your own home, which explain the core values which underpin our school.

We believe it is important that you can watch, pause and re-watch these videos as many times as you like which is why we are not doing a live event. We also believe that all parents and carers should have their questions answered by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. 

Email man-info@cset.co.uk and write Primary Transition in the subject box and we will respond to you as soon as possible.





Welcome messages from some of the key members of staff are below.

Mr John - Assistant Headteacher


“Hello and welcome to Mangotsfield School! My name is Mr John and I am Assistant Headteacher and Teacher of History and PE. A big part of my role is supporting students from primary school to secondary school. I am sure that you are all a mixture of excited and nervous about the challenges and changes that await you but please know that we will be here to support you as much as you need. There will be many opportunities for you in secondary school both inside and outside the classroom. I will be making sure that the environment in school means you are confident enough to accept these challenges and push yourselves as far as you can. I look forward to meeting you all."

Miss Clipston - Head of Year 7


“Hello everybody and welcome to Mangotsfield School. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you start your journey through secondary school. I feel privileged to be your Head of Year and cannot wait for the challenge to begin. My role as your Head of Year is to support you through your transition from primary school and throughout your time at Mangotsfield. As a PE teacher I provide opportunities for challenge both inside and outside of lessons and my aim is to enrich you with as many life experiences and opportunities to step out of your comfort zone as possible. I believe this will provide you with the tools that will help you to fulfil your potential and leave us with the best chance and choice for your future.”

Challenge Week

We were delighted to welcome 130 students from the new Year 7 cohort to a transition summer school during the holidays in August. The aim of the ‘Challenge Week’ was to provide students with the chance to step out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves, make new friends, meet their teachers and get to know the school site before starting in September. The entire week was based around the Mangotsfield Way which focuses on the four school values; community, love learning, respect and challenge. Students were split into 5 teams and completed various activities each day provided by a combination of external companies and staff at school. These included outdoor pursuits challenges with Adventure Bristol, escape room challenges with Escape Game Events and a space show with Explorer Dome, as well as ART, DT, PE, Drama and Music workshops with the fantastic staff at school.
