Moving to a secondary school can be both exciting and daunting for a child and their parents. We realize that you and your child may have a long list of questions, worries and concerns which we hope the information we provide on joining St Paul's and our Transition programme will answer and provide reassurance.
All the staff at St Paul's work hard to guide and support our new students so that they can cope with the challenges joining a new school presents, to allow them to settle-in quickly and make new friends, develop good learning habits, start making good academic progress and ultimately be happy in their new environment.
If you have any questions or concerns about the transition process please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Lisa Newton, Admissions Officer, at the number outlined.
Our prospectus is available to view online, please follow the link at the bottom of the page.
