The transition from primary school to secondary school can be overwhelming. Working closely with our local primary schools we run a comprehensive programme of transition events designed to support children through this life-changing experience. Our transition days help build the confidence and self-belief pupils need to progress smoothly from a primary school environment to a new educational experience as part of the Our Lady’s school family.
Primary school pupils from years 4, 5 and 6 will be invited to their own specifically tailored transition days where they will be given the opportunity to experience a variety of high school ‘taster’ lessons. As yet, the dates for this year’s transition days are provisional but the website will be updated with the dates before the October half-term break. Throughout the school year parents will also have the opportunity to attend events such as carol concerts and creative arts showcases, giving you the opportunity to see the wonderful work that takes place here at Our Lady’s and to have a look around the school.
This year we are also introducing an engaging range of interactive transition day experiences that we’ve never held before, which will help spark any interest the students have in science and the creative arts. We are extremely excited about these forthcoming events so watch this space as the website will soon be updated with the details.
We are proud of our school and are always willing to show parents/carers of prospective pupils around. If you are unable to attend one of our organised events and wish to take a tour of our school, please email Sally Royle (PA to Headteacher) or call her on 0161 234 3502.
