Pimlico's Transition Group
Every year Pimlico Academy hosts a transition group for Year 6's attending the Academy in September.
During one of the weekly meetings primary students have the opportunity to meet older peers and ask relevant questions about moving to secondary school such as:
- 'How do you know where to go and when'?
- 'What happens if you forget to do your homework?'
- 'Will the other students like me?'
To support the Year 6 students and help them feel more relaxed about their transition, some very thoughtful year 7 students have agreed to write letters, cards and poems to students to welcome them as Pimlicans and reassure them that starting secondary school doesn't have to be scary at all.
Our transition day for year 6 students and their parents is on Saturday, 9 June.
