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 visit Swanmore College as they participate in themed days, open evenings, sporting events and after-school clubs.
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.
We look forward to welcoming all Year 6 pupils who are coming to Swanmore in September. Pupils will have an action-packed day exploring the site, meeting new staff and seeing what lessons are like here. They will also get a chance to hear from older pupils and a few of our many support groups such as the Wellbeing Committee and the Anti-Bullying Committee.
We send an Induction Pack ahead of Induction Day and our Head of Year 7 will film a welcome message for you all to enjoy at home.
We look forward to welcoming our new cohort in September and hope you will all enjoy your years at Swanmore College.
Here is a link to an Assembly by Miss Rudd who is Head of Year 7 in September. This has been sent to all feeder Schools and is a quick introduction to Swanmore College ahead of Transition Day which will be held on Thursday 6th July ‘Welcome to Swanmore College’
Below are previous videos produced by Swanmore College pupils and staff to help new Year 7s get ready for September.
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.
