Year 6 Transition

 

Transition to Secondary school can be an exciting but nerve-wracking time for young people, not to mention their families!

At Fernhill, we offer a programme of regular visits to our school, both for children in Year 6, before and after they choose their Secondary school, and for Year 5 students whose families are beginning to ponder this difficult decision.

These visits aim to expose children to areas of the curriculum win which we at Fernhill have a greater depth of facilities than perhaps the Primary or Junior school can offer. For example, visits from Years 5 and 6 students take place to participate in Ceramics and 3D Design, Cookery, Music and Drama, not to mention a wide array of sports activities. These visits allow children to get over the initial fear of stepping into 'big school' and allow them to experience what we have to offer as they make their choice of school. In addition, these are valuable opportunities for our excellent staff to get to know your child and for our own students to build their confidence and communication skills as they assist with these days.

Each year, the Headteacher visits all of our feeder schools with Prefects and ex-students to show off what we have to offer. Please do take the time to share the presentation below with your child.
