Our famous Transition Week gives all of the Year 6 children who will be starting here in September a chance to settle in, make new friends, and have fun here at Shuttleworth. Every child works within a small group to develop ideas, learn skills, and make new friends.

Miss. Roach, our Transition Lead, and Mr. Turner, the Year 7 Pastoral Leader, work tirelessly to create a great environment that promotes a smooth and stress-free transition from primary school to secondary school. They are both excited to have so many brilliant young people coming to our school!

Our student ambassadors help too; guiding new students around the school and assisting our teachers. We’re very proud of them for setting such a fantastic example for our new students.

“Increasing numbers of parents are choosing the school for their children. Leaders ensure that pupils in Year 6 benefit from an extremely effective programme to support their transition from primary school. Pupils in other year groups can develop their leadership skills through their involvement in this well-planned programme of activities.”
