On this page you will find links to our primary feeder schools.
Our strong links with our primary feeder schools afford us the opportunity to offer both academic and pastoral Transition activities from Year 4 onwards. In Year 4, pupils are invited to Holy Cross to take part in a Retreat Day. On this day, they will take part in activities on the theme of the journey from primary school to secondary school. For pupils in Years 4 and 5, the English department runs a Spelling Bee competition. Also in Year 5, pupils will be invited to take part in the Thomas Martland Trophy, which is a maths competition that has been running in partnership with our primary feeders for 25 years. The science department also runs Year 5 science days where pupils partake in a range of science investigations and practical activities. Science also runs a practical science competition for teams of Year 6 pupils from each of our primary feeders.
In Year 6, teachers from English and maths go into our primary feeder schools to teach lessons. In the last term of Year 6, the English department provide a scheme of work for pupils to complete with their primary school class and this scheme continues in the first half term of Year 7.
We regularly liaise with feeder primary head teachers regarding the academic and pastoral transition process to ensure that we are constantly tailoring our plans to best meet the needs of the pupils.
