Year 7 Transition

The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting one, full of challenges and experiences for both parent and child.

At Pittville School we work very hard to ensure that all students enjoy a successful transition. We understand that every child is different and we want to work closely with parents and carers so that students are ready for the challenges of secondary school. We want students to be able to enjoy new friendships, gain confidence and develop self-esteem and resilience so that they are able to embrace the new opportunities secondary school brings. We also want students to get used to their new routines and the way a secondary school is organised.

We work closely with the Year 6 teachers to ensure that we receive all the required information about our new students. Our transition lead Mr Kavanagh and our SENDco Mrs Bottell are also in regular contact with the Year 6 teachers so as to ensure each student has a smooth transition.

Pupils joining us in the new academic year will be placed in a House group of around 180 pupils, and designated a tutor group with 20 other pupils from your year group.

If you have any queries regarding the transition process please contact: Mr D Kavanagh at the school on
