Secondary School Links

Transition and the way schools work together with each other can influence children’s future school careers. For most children the move from primary to secondary school is usually characterised by a mix of excitement and anxiety. Alongside the anticipation of making new friends, being treated in a more adult way and learning new things, comes the uncertainty about what the new school will be like and worries about different routines, teachers and workloads. To promote a smooth transition, we arrange links with local secondary schools where our pupils take part in different activities, have the opportunity to meet older pupils and generally get a feel for secondary school life.
