What is Transition School

Ahead Tuition
Transition is a fantastic opportunity for students in Year 6 moving into Year 7, to experience life in secondary school before going. Our highly experienced team run a range of courses to support students in bridging the gap and building confidence. 
Our workshops and activities are designed to develop the skills necessary for a positive transition into bigger schools, and by getting our students to participate and integrate with others, we believe we have the tools to make sure the start to secondary will be an enjoyable one.
