Key Stage 2 - Key Stage 3 Transition

We work closely with our partner primary schools, especially our seven Roman Catholic partners, to deliver a Key Stage 2 - Key Stage 3 transition programme that sets out to ensure that Year 7 students build on their knowledge and skills from primary school, are “secondary ready” and continue to make personal and academic progress.

Our seven Roman Catholic partner primary schools are:

  1. Holy Infant & St Anthony R C Primary School
  2. St Brendan's R C Primary School
  3. St Columba’s R C Primary School
  4. St John the Evangelist RC Primary School
  5. St Joseph’s R C Primary School
  6. SS Osmund & Andrew’s R C Primary School
  7. St Thomas of Canterbury R C Primary School

Our Key Stage 2 – Key Stage 3 transition programme sets out to achieve the following:

  • Ensure that the current Year 7 curriculum builds on knowledge and skills obtained by students during Key Stage 2.
  • Ensure that Year 7 teachers really know what is taught in Year 6.
  • Ensure shared and/or cross moderation of students work and schemes of learning exists between stakeholders in both phases.
  • Continue to ensure that the students who join our community are effectively supported to make a safe and confident personal transition between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3.
