Transition Day 2017 - Tuesday 4th July 2017
This will be a chance for new Year 7 students to enjoy a day finding their way around the school and getting a taste of secondary school in preparation for joining us in September 2017.
We are aware of how this will be a significant change for both parents/carers and pupils and we pride ourselves on ensuring a smooth transition for the whole family. All students and their parents/carers are invited into the school during May/June for a short meeting with a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Every child is unique and to support a successful transition we aim to visit every student in their primary school where we meet our prospective pupils and make contact with their year 6 teacher and other staff to gather as much information as we can prior to starting with us in September. We then carefully choose the tutor group for each child ensuring the tutors are fully briefed on their tutees' academic ability, strengths and interests.
Students are then invited into Prendergast School on Transition Day in July to meet their tutor and fellow tutees. This is an exciting opportunity for pupils to take part in activities, tour the site and meet other pupils in their tutor group. Parents are also invited to attend a Transition evening on Thursday 15th June 2017 to be given more information about the school and have the opportunity to meet key staff.
