School Transition

The Year 7 Achievement Team
The transition from Primary to Secondary school is a very important period in a child’s life. At Cowbridge Comprehensive School we aim to ensure that for each child, the transition is as smooth and stress free as possible.
In order to support your child’s transition we have put together the following guides which, we hope, will help to answer some of the questions you may have and alleviate some of the worries and anxieties that your child may have:

“This might not be the transition we all hoped for or planned for but we are sure that, with the support of our staff and other pupils, you will soon feel happy and settled in your new school. We are looking forward to meeting you all soon!”

A Pupil's Guide to Transition

Some information has been prepared to help prepare your child for transition, to help them understand what to expect when they join us and most importantly, what to expect on their first day with us.

‘Tips and Tricks’

This short film was made by some of our Year 7 and 8 pupils with the help of a production company. It features the children’s experiences of transition, their initial worries and how they settled into their new school.
