Key Stage 2 Transition

We know that the transition from KS2 into Secondary School can be a daunting prospect, both for pupils and parents. Please be reassured that every year, hundreds of children successfully take the big step to Year 7 and our experience at Kings’ shows us that early anxieties quickly disappear.  

Transition is a part of life we each deal with in our own way and at Kings’ we understand that communication is vital to make this easier for both parents and pupils. It is important parents can be involved in the transition process alongside their children, so we aim to make this a positive experience for everyone.

Our aims and outcomes for our transition programme are to: 

  • Prepare you for change 
  • Help build confidence 
  • Compliment pupil’s learning, social, and intellectual development 
  • Provide new working experiences and environments 
  • Work together as a team 

Kings’ is a friendly and welcoming place. We have a large team of staff and pupils working to support our newest families from before the first day, throughout your school journey. Our transition programme allows for a handover of information from primary schools, and gives parents and children the opportunity to meet some of the key staff within the Pastoral Team who will be supporting the children throughout their transition from primary to secondary school.  There will also be a range of activities offered to the children during the summer holidays.

Summer School 2024

Attending our Year 6 Summer School is a great way to get to know the school site, some of the staff, and to meet others who will be in the same Tutor Group in September. It is also ideal for those who may be feeling anxious. Each day has different activities which we hope everyone can enjoy. Children are welcome to attend as many or as few days as they wish.

Please contact Mrs Jenkins on transition1@kings-winchester.hants.sch.uk if you have any queries relating to Summer School.
