Transition

Transition Overview

The move from Primary to Secondary School can be quite a daunting experience for some. Therefore our aim is to make this move as smooth as possible.

 

Ways in which we do this are:

  • The Head of Year 7 and SENCO visit all main feeder schools to talk to the students and the Year 6 teachers. We gather a detailed profile of every student and can provide instant answers to questions students may have.
     
  • Providing a fully structured induction day in the summer term, to allow students to familiarise themselves with the school, meet their tutors and sample a variety of new subjects. The following evening, parents are invited to school to meet the Headteacher, Head of Year and the Year 7 tutors.
  • In addition, many are invited to attend a variety of summer school activities, including literacy and numeracy.
  • Year 5s are invited to watch the summer school performances. In the past students have watched We Will Rock You, Grease, Oliver and Bugsy Malone.
  • Primary pupils have been invited to take part in workshops where they have been taught by our Year 9 and 10 Learning Ambassadors.

As a result of all of this, students arrive in September with confidence, ready to engage and learn.
