Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting but somewhat daunting experience for both students and parents alike. Here at St. Bede’s we recognise what a big step it is and are therefore committed to delivering a transition programme that provides creative and enjoyable opportunities for all.

St. Bede’s has a dedicated Transition Team who will work with and support all prospective and new Year 7 students to ensure their transition is as smooth as possible. We have developed a fantastic transition programme that will help your child to become more familiar with our school, make new friends and prepare for the exciting opportunities still to come.

“The whole transition process has been excellent. We couldn’t have wished for more information, advice and support from St. Bede’s.”

“Our daughter couldn’t be happier at St. Bede’s. Thank you for everything you all have done to help her settle in.”

“My son has been very anxious about moving up to secondary school but the support he has had from the Transition Team has been excellent.”
