Moving Up From Year 6

Transition Information


We are committed to making the transition experience a happy one for students and parents. Throughout the school year we maintain regular contact with the feeder primaries. Examples of this contact include:

  • Visits to Primary School by Burnage staff.
  • Transition visits over the Summer Term to collect information about students who are going to come to us.
  • Individual visits arranged for parents who have queries or who want to look around the school.
  • Children from Primaries coming to Burnage for a variety of activities eg Drama, Cooking, PE.
  • Two taster days for Year 6 children.
  • One taster day for Year 5 children.
  • An open day for parents in the Autumn term.

In addition to the above, the KS2-KS3 Transition co-ordinator Ms Doyle maintains an overview of Year 7 students, providing an additional level of Pastoral Support during students’ first year at secondary school.
