A Guided Transition
We are responsive to individuals’ needs, particularly at times of transition whether it be joining the school, choosing subject options, or career and university choices. Key staff work closely together at such times to ensure informed decisions are made.
The Lower and Upper years at St George’s are closely integrated and, as you would expect in an all-through school, the transition is seamless. On a practical level our Lower School pupils will already be familiar with Senior pupils and members of the Senior teaching staff. That’s because through many school events and House Competitions, our Upper School pupils get involved by helping younger children, and because the Lower School pupils will already have received some lessons from Senior teachers.
In addition, towards the end of their Junior days, pupils in Year 6, including those transitioning into the school from another setting, are invited to attend subject specific workshops and a full Transition Day in the Senior section of the school. It’s great preparation before they take the step up for real.
