Transition from Primary



This programme provides an insight into how one large secondary school, the Castle School in Gloucestershire, works to ease the transition from primary to secondary school for their new set of Year 7s.

The programme follows Sue Hill, the head of Year 7, during the crucial period in June when she visits the feeder primary schools and meets up with every new student. Sue talks about the juggling act required to ensure each form is well balanced and how she organises induction day to work for the benefit of all concerned.

We also find out about the school's special scheme for pupils who are expected to find the move particularly difficult and see how the current Year 7s are helping to combat the fears of the newcomers.
