Year 6 Transition

We recognise that the move to secondary school is a huge event in a young person’s life. It is our aim at Swanmore College to capture the natural anticipation and excitement that each child feels and provide rewarding and appropriate challenges that allow pupils to feel successful and confident.

We have strong links with our feeder schools across the calendar year and many of our junior pupils have the opportunity to visit the college during Years 4, 5 and 6 as they participate in themed days and sporting events.

The close working links with colleagues at our feeder schools also mean that we can ensure there is continuity and progression for all pupils as academic and pastoral information is shared between the primary schools and Swanmore College.


Transition Videos

Below are videos produced by Swanmore College pupils and staff to help new Year 7s get ready for September.

The fantastic Year 6 PiXL summer programme, ‘Be Awesome, Go Big!‘ is now available for Year 6 pupils to access, explore and begin.

There are also some excellent resources for parents to help support and get their child ready for Year 7.

This project is optional – pupils can do some, all or none! If pupils choose to take part in this project they can bring in their Be Awesome, Go Big workbooks with any completed tasks on Friday 4 September to share with their tutors.

Interactive Map

We understand that it can be quite daunting starting a new school and being unfamiliar with your new surroundings. With this in mind, we have created an interactive map with video tours.
