Transition

Welcome to our transition page 


Transition simply means moving from Year 6 to Year 7.


Starting a new school is an exciting time. At Quarrydale Academy we pride ourselves on our transition process. Once your application has been accepted, we will start to work with you to ensure the journey is as smooth as possible.

Moving from primary to secondary school involves a degree of apprehension for most pupils. Pupils have to adapt to a more challenging school setting with different academic structures and expectations as well as changes in social interactions with teachers and peers.

At Quarrydale our experienced Transition Team will work with staff in linked primary schools gathering information to make your transition as easy and smooth for you as possible, supporting you throughout Year 7.

Transition is very important to us and we realise that for many of you it will be a worrying time, but with the current situation in the country, our normal arrangements will understandably change. We will do our best to accommodate our new pupils to the best of our ability and be reassured that we will be here to support not only students but their parents and carers too.

We will be in touch as soon as possible with more help and advice but in the meantime please check our website regularly for general information and updates about the school.

You might also want to have a look at BBC Bitesize who have put together lots of information and videos about starting High School. The series offers practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.
