Transition

For 6th Form transition, please visit HERE.

We take particular care to help new pupils to settle quickly into the larger community of a secondary school and there is a close liaison with primary schools. In the Summer Term, we begin the process of Primary Transfer with a series of visits to our major feeder schools to talk to class teachers about each pupil coming in September, in order to build up a full picture of their needs and strengths in the immediate months of arrival.

We offer an extensive outreach programme to our local feeder schools. In terms 2-6 we visit local schools and our PE department run fun sports activities. For these sessions year 10 and 11 pupils that are taking part in Young Sports Leaders act as helpers/ coaches.

We also offer subject specific transition events over the Summer Term. Parents and pupils are invited to the school and while the children take part in fun activities in the subject area the parents are given the opportunity to find out about the subject area and ask any questions to the teachers .

In the Summer Term, members of our year team visit the local feeder schools and talk to the year 6 pupils who are joining St George’s in September. Pupils are given information booklets and the opportunity to ask any questions they have about life at St George’s Church of England Foundation School.

We offer a Transition Day for the pupils who are coming to St George’s. On this day, pupils take part in a series of activities and challenges which give them the perfect opportunity to develop friendships with others, and also to get used to the school layout.  

 

Learning Journey TP

Transition Taster Sessions

The National Transition Day is on Thursday, 4th July 2024, when year 6 pupils will join us for the day.  Additionally, please find below the timetable of workshops to introduce parents and year 6 pupils to the various curriculum areas in our school.  Directors of Learning are scheduled to give a talk each week, while the children take part in a workshop. Mr Morgan will present whole school information each week to provide an understanding of how things work at St George’s. Parents will not join their child in the workshop as it is a time for them to meet new peers and begin to feel independent as they prepare for secondary school.
