 Year 7 programme a roaring success

John Wollaston offers an outstanding Year 7 Transition Programme. Over the past eight years the School has developed a successful year-long academic, pastoral and co-curricular programme to assist Year 7s with their transition to secondary schooling. The Year 7s are housed in their own purpose built Year 7 Centre. They have a teacher with whom they spend most of their day, as they get a taste of the secondary environment by attending specialist classes including Visual Arts, Science and Food Technology.

The Year 7s become confident, comfortable and focused learners ready to tackle the rigours of secondary study. The year begins with an amazing adventure based camp where friendships are forged and the tight knit community of Year 7 develops. These strong friendships and support structures then follow the students through their schooling at John Wollaston. The inclusive and caring Year 7 environment is an example of the innovative approach taken at John Wollaston. Head of Year 7 Jaqueline Fisher says they have developed a year-long Transition Map giving students the skills to integrate into secondary education.
