Transition Year is an extremely busy year with multiple events taking place for Transtion Year students on a weekly basis. Events range from trips, workshops and speakers to involvement in the multiple student led committees (Media Committee, Wellbeing Committee, Green Schools Committee etc.). The team strongly recommends that students try to get involved in as many of the opportunites as possible throughout the year. Communication with the students by the Transition Year Coordinator and the Transiton Year - Year Head occurs in person during assemblies but all information and documentation will be posted on the year group Google Classroom. Please ensure that your son/daughter checks the school's digital education platform regularly.
