Primary school students are given the opportunity to take part in events at the Secondary school such as attending workshops and performances organised by the hardworking staff and students. This gives them a preview of life after Primary and engages their minds in new activities and interests they may not have had the opportunity to take part in previously.
Students take part in a transition week in which they are given a timetable and attend lessons in a secondary format with their temporarily assigned class, preparing them for how their school life will change when they leave their Primary school.
