Transition to Fir Vale School

The transition from Year 6 to Year 7 (Secondary School) is one of the most important challenge your child will face.

At Fir Vale School everything is done to ensure that every child is fully supported in making this journey smooth and successful.

Parents and their children will hear whether they have a place at Fir Vale School in March of the year that they will move to secondary school.

During this transition period every Y6 pupil will receive support and guidance in how to make a successful transition to Fir Vale School.

Staff at Fir Vale School are involved in a variety of activities e.g. visits (to primaries), gathering vital information about pupils and planning the July in-school Transition Event where pupils and their parents are invited to attend.

The start of Secondary School is a very important time for all pupils and their families.
