 Parent Transition Journey

Mrs Brookes-Ashton.JPGAs a school, we appreciate that leaving Primary school marks not only a significant change in your child's life, but also signals a fundamental change in teaching style, approach to learning and educational expectation.

As educators we know that entering secondary school for the first time can be a potentially daunting time, for both you and your child,  particularly if you are experiencing a child entering Secondary school for the first time. Entering "Big" school is different, and in recognition of that difference, Year 7 transition is managed very differently to other types of enrolment.

The transition journeyinformation below is designed to help guide parents and carers whose child has received notification that their child has received a place at PGS ALC.   As soon as school admissions notifies PGS of allocated places you will receive a Parents' Guide to Year 7 Transition booklet outlining all necessary information for a smooth transition.  It is essential to keep this booklet safe as you will need to refer to it until commencement at Penistone Grammar School ALC.
