We are extremely proud of our transition programme, which is in place to ensure that the move from primary school to secondary school is a smooth and positive experience for all our new students. Members of the transition team have a wealth of experience and are committed to ensuring that both students and parents feel supported throughout the process.

In addition to our staff transition team, we have an enthusiastic Year 7 student leader team who are also part of the process, and support all of the transition events. This strategy has proved very successful in helping the new students feel at ease, answering any questions they have and offering ‘top tips’ to help them settle.

We recognise that the transition to a secondary school is a very exciting time, but in some cases it can also be an anxious time. To ensure all students have a positive experience, and in order to settle quickly, we have an extensive transition programme in place, including enhanced support for individual students.

Transition events include:

  • Primary school visits
  • Enhanced transition programme
  • SEND transition session
  • Virtual Coffee morning for parents/carers
  • Transition day for students
  • Virtual Transition evening for parents
  • Get to know NLS day
  • Bespoke transition curriculum on entry.

We look forward to welcoming our new students!
