Given the current circumstances, there have been some changes to our normal transition programme this year. This area of our website has been developed to provide a range of useful information and resources to support the transition process.

It will be updated with further information and resources when they become available so please check back regularly. You can access the range of information and resources in this area using the navigation options under TRANSITION at the left hand side of this page.

Transition – the next steps in learning

The transition to a new school can often be a daunting and worrying time for parents and children alike. We understand this, and work extremely hard to make sure that children joining us for the first time are prepared, settled and happy when continuing their learning journey with us for what we hope will be the next seven years.

Strong links – the smoothest transition

Successful transition begins when children are still in their primary schools. Regular contact is a key feature of the transition to us from our feeder primary schools. Our schools work collaboratively together on various initiatives and projects. We also work closely with our primary school colleagues and listen carefully to what they tell us about your children. This provides us with a wealth of important information that helps us with your child’s personal transition and supports us in responding effectively to their individual needs. This ensures that they are comfortable about joining us for the new year and genuinely excited about the journey that lies ahead.

Parent Partnerships – strength by working together

Parent partnerships are such a valuable part of the transition process. We want your child to be successful during their time with us and, through working together effectively, we can make sure that we maximise their chances of success.
