Transition and Lower School
The transition between primary and secondary schools is usually the biggest planned change that children go through during their education. When they move from being the oldest biggest and most confident pupils in a primary school to being the newest, youngest and least experienced pupils in a secondary school. We work to make it as easy as possible by breaking it down into a number of simple small steps.
We have found that this process greatly reduces any anxiety associated with starting at a new school and by the time pupils arrive in September they feel relaxed and are beginning to feel confident about their new school.
Once pupils get started
During Year 7 they have come full circle and make their own video to explain how they felt when they first came and how they have moved on. They are proud to visit primary schools and act as hosts and tour guides for the next cohort of year 6 pupils.
