Transition - Moving to Secondary School


Moving to Secondary School

The opportunity to experience new subjects, new activities and make new friends at a bigger school is often met with great enthusiasm. At Parrs Wood, we also understand that whilst some students feel this way, some may feel nervous and anxious at the thought of starting at a new school. For most, it’s normally a little bit of both!

To ensure that our new Year 7 students’ transition from primary school is as seamless and stress-free as possible, Parrs Wood has a very effective and highly-regarded transition programme in place.

Current circumstances mean we can’t run the transition programme we hoped to, but we’re still going to make sure you get the chance to find out more about the school, hear from your new teachers and take part in some monthly challenges ahead of September. Until then, keep exploring our website and social media feeds. If you have any questions you can reach us on email: seeyousoon@pwhs.co.uk
