At St Cuthbert's we pride ourselves on the work that we complete with our local primaries and have maintained successful links between them for many years. Throughout the academic year we create opportunities for our staff to work with primary pupils in the primary setting but also within the setting of St Cuthbert's, to give pupils an idea of what to expect when they make the move to secondary education.
As well as this we have an established Transition programme which ensures that all Year 6 students choosing to come to St Cuthbert's are looked after in making the transition from primary to secondary. This includes, meetings with Year 6 and other primary staff and students attending Transition Days at St Cuthbert's to meet staff and of course to make new friends ready for September.
