stronger links between schools, staff, 
students and parents.

Transition projects can:

Our mission is to create an enviroment where successful transition can take place by helping the children:
 

  • Develop new friendships and improve their self esteem and confidence
  • Settle into school life without causing concern to their parents
  • Develop an increasing interest in school and school work
  • Get used to new routines and school organisation with great ease
  • Experience curriculum continuity.

How we work

Show or hide

Our transition projects tackle the issues surrounding moving from primary to secondary school, they are designed to help create a streamlined process that links schools, staff, students and parents. 

Each project centres around the use of creative writing workshops that link English modules in year 5 and 6 to those they would be expected to do at the beginning of year 7 and also helps to build the pupils emotional resilience preparing them for the transition.

Wherever possible, we aim to include primary pupils visiting the secondary school site to work alongside older students in the enviroment they will be coming into.
