Our aim is that we will do our upmost to support the transition of every child to our school; irrespective of their ability. We do this by providing as many opportunities as we can for students and parents to visit our school and work with staff and other students.
We provide a comprehensive Transition Programme which begins when students are in year 5, this ensures that all students will have the chance to visit and learn in our school so that they are comfortable and confident when they attend in year 7.
We hope that the combination of learning activities, social events, informal meetings and formal meetings will give parents and students all the information and confidence they need to make the move from Primary School as stress free as possible.
Once students are in year 7 we provide an Induction Week which equips students with the information they need to help them settle into their new environment. This again involves a lot of fun activities; however they have a serious purpose, which is to provide information, support and guidance. This includes a fun filled Maths Bonanza as well as an orienteering activity which helps pupils find their way around their new school.
Overall we hope to help all students and parents overcome as many of their queries and worries about secondary school as we can, in order to make new students look forward to beginning their new school with nervous excitement and anticipation rather than dread and anxiety.
