Our staff are involved in a full range of liaison with primary feeder schools allowing pupils to familiarise themselves with the staff prior to their move to St. Augustine’s.

Liaison currently takes place with our music and drama departments through invitations to and participation in our school production and concerts.

In addition to these activities we also hold an open evening in the Autumn Term, which gives pupils the opportunity to visit the school before they transfer from their primary school.

The Transfer Process

A Number of events take place to help reassure your child about transfer.

Our Head of Lower School, Miss Robinson, visits local primary schools during the year before they are due to start along with our Inclusion Manager: Mrs Macauley. They will speak to relevant staff about any particular needs your child may have.

Pupils visit the school in early July for an induction programme, which includes meeting their new form tutors, sample lessons, having school lunch and becoming familiar with the school building.

Maintaining an excellent relationship with our feeder primary schools ensures our students enjoy a smooth transition to their secondary education.
