// Transition to secondary school
Transition activities begin in Year 5 for students in the Firth Park Family of Schools. The programme includes visits to the school to take part in lessons, workshops and there are a variety of opportunities to take part in sports activities and watch performances. Many students come to after school clubs and Extended Services activities.
In Year 6, teachers from the school visit primary schools on a regular basis to work with students and teach lessons. Students are invited to perform in the school and present their work on a regular basis. In the summer term students come to the school for a week to take part in lessons and activities and get to know teachers and their way around the building. There are also events for parents throughout the year and a Year 6 parents transition evening in the summer term. Once in Year 7 the transition programme continues as the students settle into secondary school life.
