Year 6/7 transition

WELCOME - we are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 (Blue Ties) who will be joining us in September 2017. There is more information about what will happen before you join us in September if you scroll down the page. But if you have any questions, please get in touch with the college (tel 0208 672 8582) or if you would like to come and have a look around the college, please attend one of our Open Events.


 Green Ties 2015

The students joining Ernest Bevin in September 2017 will be Blue Ties.

Here are key dates for those joining the college in Year 7 in September 2017.


31st October 2015- Deadline for applications

Wandsworth Council recommend you complete your form and submit it by Friday 21st October before the half term break. You should submit your application for secondary school places to your home borough (ie the borough where you live).

March 2017- Year 7 Offers

You will receive your offer of a place at Ernest Bevin Collge in March. Wandsworth Council will post offers on 1st March 2017. Online applicants will be sent a notification email from 5pm on 1st March.

March/April - Year 7 places accepted

You must reply to your home borough accepting the place you have been offered. You can choose to stay on the waiting list for schools of higher preference. A second round of offers will be made and places may continue to come available into the summer term as the waiting lists move.

Week commencing 12th June - 'Interviews'

Each boy who has accepted a place at EBC is invited to come into the college with their parents or guardians to meet a member of staff. The meeting is a chance to fill in the necessary paperwork, order school uniform and ask any questions you may have - it is not an 'academic' or selective interview.


Although these Open Mornings are primarily aimed at pupils looking to make the transition next year, you are very welcome to come and see the college on a normal working day. There will be a chance to tour the college, see lessons taking place and the facilities. There will also be the chance to ask questions to the Principal and members of the Senior Leadership team who will be based in the library.



Children identified with an additional need will be invited in for an induction morning with the SEND team to help familiarise the boys and their families with the college


INDUCTION EVENING - Thursday 13th July 

All Year 6 boys are invited into college with their parents. There will be a short presentation by the Head of Year and then the year group will break up into tutor groups and meet your tutor and other students who will be in your tutor group.

SUMMER SCHOOL - Monday 24th July to Friday 28th July 2017 (8.50am to 3.30pm) tbc

Year 6 students who have accepted their place at EBC are invited to attend Summer School to help ease the transition from Year 6 to Year 7.  


FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN TERM - Tuesday 5th September

Only Year 7 students come into college on this first day of term. The Year 7 team will run an induction programme to help the boys get to know other members of their tutor group and to find their way around school.

We also run Year 7 & 8 buddy afternoons during the first half term to help new students get to know boys in other tutor groups and those in the year above them.

If you have any questions about Year 6/7 transition please contact the college on Tel: 020 8672 8582.
