Year 6 Transition

The transition from primary into secondary school is a significant rite of passage and a key element in the process of becoming a young adult. Nevertheless, starting secondary school can result in mixed feelings of excitement, apprehension and nervousness for your child.

At SSA, we strive to provide a smooth and successful transition for our families. As well as providing families with opportunities to view our school sites and meet with our teachers, we produce transition resources for our students to read, view and complete over the course of their Summer holidays to prepare them for their secondary school life.

Our transition steps and linked resources below ensure that our students’ questions are answered, their worries are heard and that they are introduced to our school expectations and teaching and learning processes all before starting with us in September.


Transition Documents

Families’ Handbook

Transition Booklet

SEND Transition Booklet

Print versions of the above resources are sent home to all students due to start at SSA.


Transition Videos

We encourage all students starting at SSA to watch our SSA Year 6 Transition Playlist. Our videos feature tours of our school buildings, introductions to our leadership teams, conversations with our students and much more!
