Year 6 to 7 Transition 2024


Welcome to our 2024/25 Year 7 Students


Transition is a part of life we all deal with in our own way. To make transition easier for both students and parents and carers, communication is vital. At Bedwas High School we understand the importance of keeping everyone involved in the transition process and we aim to make this a positive experience for all involved. Some of our aims during transition are:

  • Preparing for change
  • Building confidence
  • Working as a team
  • Assisting learning, social and intellectual development

Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting and significant event. It is an important milestone which, for many parents and carers, signals a change in expectations regarding developing greater independence and organisation.

Successful transition depends on a range of things such as creating the right environment where students feel safe and secure, to supporting students in developing positive relationships quickly within their tutor groups and with their teachers, and for us as a school, to successfully work in partnership with parents and carers.

It is often parents and carers that worry the most and this can be because, for many of you, your time at secondary school was some time ago and you are not sure what to expect and you will want to offer your child reassurance and support but don’t necessarily have the information to do so! There are lots of people here to support students through this transition period and we know that they are bound to be a little bit nervous or anxious – this is perfectly normal!

To give you an introduction and more information about our school please take some time to look at the information on this page and also other information on the website.
