A Successful Transition

The school achieves a smooth and successful transfer from primary school by visiting primary schools, inviting year five and year six pupils into school to sample specialist lessons in subjects such as French or Information Technology and by organizing a thorough programme of support for new pupils.

Induction activities begin in July of year six with a special day at Bydales for transferring pupils and ends in December with a special open evening when parents can meet tutors to discuss progress and view the work produced by pupils since their arrival at Bydales.
