Moving from primary to secondary school can be a daunting prospect for Year 6 pupils. To help reduce anxieties pupils may have; and maintain the achievements of primary school, Mary Immaculate have developed a comprehensive transition plan. We aim to ensure all pupils moving through the key stages have the relevant information and enriching experiences for them to successfully move from primary school, through high school and on to further education or employment.
The programme begins in Year 5 with our staff working closely with our partner primary schools on a range of activities designed to help pupils get to know us and the school better. We also hold an Open Evening which aims to provide a detailed introduction to the school for potential pupils and their families. Parents and carers are welcome to come and ask questions and there will be current Year 7 students helping to show them round to talk about their experiences of moving to secondary education.
