Senior School Transition

Moving from the primary phase to senior school is a significant and exciting event in a child’s life. This can also be an anxious time for both parents and pupils. It is an important milestone which marks not only a considerable change in the expectations of teachers, such as more independent working and self-organisation, but pupils will be expected to cope with a whole variety of new experiences which demand skills and abilities not called upon before.

A positive transition is therefore vital to ensure that every pupil feels welcome, valued and safe so that they can quickly settle into the next phase in their education and continue on a positive path to successful learning.
