The transition from primary to secondary school is made much easier by the warm, caring and supportive atmosphere at Eggar’s. We are smaller than the average school in the area and that allows us to know all our students really well. This not only creates a fantastic support network throughout all year groups but also generates a welcoming and engaging school community.
To make the transition to Eggar’s as smooth as possible, we work with you as closely as possible in the run-up to September and the start of the new school year. We meet the children and their Year 6 teachers at their school in the summer term. Students are also invited to a summer transition camp at the start of the summer holidays to get to know their tutor group and the school site, whilst taking part in a range of exciting activities.
Transition continues once the students commence in September with a range of support packages to help those who have found the start of secondary school life more difficult. Our pastoral team will keep in touch, and we will work hard to ensure your child becomes a happy and confident Eggar's student.
