The move to secondary school brings many changes and can be daunting for students. At EEHS, we value the importance of transition and strive for all students to make the best possible start to our school.
What we think good transition looks like?
- Social adjustment: students developing new friendships and improve self-esteem and confidence.
- Institutional adjustment: students getting used to new routines and school organisation quickly.
- Curriculum interest continuity: students experience curriculum continuity at an appropriate level of challenge in their learning. Show interest and engagement in school and schoolwork.
With this in mind, we have developed a range of events to support our new students with their transition to secondary school 2022/23. Please see key events below:
Inclusion afternoons aimed at vulnerable students who feel anxious about the secondary transition. Note: we will contact your current teachers about signing up for these sessions.
Enrichment afternoons all children are invited to experience a range of subjects in our new facilities. Each session will include PE and at least one other subject/activity. Note: we will contact your current teachers about signing up for these sessions.
Transition day (Tuesday 28th June): all children invited to experience a day at EEHS ready for September. We will contact parents with more information about this day.
New Parent Induction (Wednesday 6th July, 5:30 to 6:30pm): this will include a presentation from the Head of Year on how to prepare for secondary school and a chance to meet the form tutors. We will contact parents with more information about this evening.
