Level 6 Transition

Level 6 to Year 7

Moving from primary to secondary school is a big step for any young person. A new setting, new subjects, new teachers, new structures and new friends add up to some big new challenges. We want to help make that experience both comfortable and exciting. We have included the video below to assist both parents and children with this transition. It consists of real people, young and older talking about what it means, how to prepare and how to make the most of it.
