Our transition pack aims to help students feel a little more comfortable and excited about starting their journey with us in August; it includes some tasks to work through with parents/carers, and some key information about transition at the beginning of the academic year. It will also give students the opportunity to start their ‘Hero’s Journey’, using the tools developed at Primary School.
