Moving from Primary to Graham School
We are well aware of the possible worries linked to moving up to secondary school – especially given the current circumstances due to restrictions following the Covid-19 pandemic. To alleviate anxieties, we have a planned programme, worked out in consultation with our partner primary schools. As well as developing stronger links between the schools through teacher visits and meetings to discuss the curriculum, we are still hoping to invite all of our potential students to join us for various events in school. To further help familiarise your son/daughter with our amazing school, we’ve prepared a short video tour which you can watch below.
Moving from primary school to secondary school is a big step for many students and a new challenge. Transition is a chance to learn through new experiences and take advantage of the many opportunities that a larger school can offer. Every student will have a dedicated form tutor, Head of Year and access to a Pastoral Support Team. Every effort is made at Graham School to ensure that every student has a smooth transition. We want every student to enjoy the move to secondary school and aim for each individual to be supported through the process. This is usually done through visits to each primary school at the beginning of June, meeting students and parents, discussions with current Year 6 teachers and enhanced transition for more vulnerable students encompassing extra visits to Graham School.
When starting a new school there are many questions which might arise. Our transition booklet will hopefully answer many of the questions that you or your son/daughter may have.
If there are any issues about which you are unclear please do not hesitate to contact
Every year in July, Graham School usually invites all new students to attend the school site as part of the Scarborough Area Transfer Process. However, in these uncertain times, we’ll post updated arrangements for Transition Days as soon as we have more information.
