I'll just add that when you get all the info through for the transition day and the new parents evening, there should be a KPS form to fill in. This will be for a contacts list of other girls in the class (and others in the year if parents want to share their info with other classes).
Certainly previous years have organised a get together over the summer too.
Hopefully you will found someone close by from that even if you don't from this forum.
Many thanks Tinkers- this is quite useful.
