Supporting students to make a successful transition

The skills young people will need for making the transition from one school to another are similar to those that they will need to progress successfully through education and towards the future world of work. 

This toolkit provides activities and inspiration to help Year6/P7 and Year 7/S1 students aim high, stay positive, and build skills like problem solving, listening and leadership to help them progress confidently, during their last year of primary school and throughout their first year of secondary school.
