Year 7 Transition

Y7 Getting a Head Start

Thinking for the Future

TFTF is an external service that specialises in behaviour and resilience mentoring. We have an assigned mentor who works with small groups on a particular focus, using discussion and tasks to build student confidence.

Parents of Year 7 have been contacted to sign up to the programme. Choosing from one of the four focus categories, parents can consent to their child receiving group support to assist with the transition to secondary school.  The available foci are:

  1. Building confidence, resilience and self esteem

  2. Developing communication and social skills

  3. Coping with the social environment

  4. Dealing with emotions

Please contact Mrs Tyrie ( for more information.
