Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

We want the transition between primary school and secondary school to be as smooth as possible.

That is why our transition starts in Year 5 (and even lower down primary school). There are many opportunities for primary students to come to St John Fisher. This enables them to get a feel of the school, and how we operate. We have students join us from over 20 primary schools. Some are the only child to come from their school. This is why from being accepted we offer a transition which is designed to make the move free of stress.

There are visits to the primary school from our staff. There are visits to our school over a number of days so your child can get used to our operations. We have a long track record of working effectively with students from a wide variety of schools – and do this well.

Mrs Crichton is responsible for transition. If you have any queries, please email
