Transition from Primary School to Lyng Hall:
Lyng Hall works closely with its feeder primary schools creating a close relationship even before the pupils start. Year 6 students follow a transition programme which allows them to reflect on their experiences at Primary School. This includes:
- Powerpoint Demonstrations
- Creative and factual essay writing
They bring this work with them to Lyng Hall when they start and present their experiences in a celebration with other Year 7 students. We further support our new intake families by holding personal interviews during the summer term before they start.
This gives parents and pupils the opportunity to discuss any issues or concerns they may have and it gives us the opportunity to share information and news.
Lyng Hall welcomes all students on their first day with a fun and inspiring programme designed to introduce pupils to their tutors and designated member of staff.
Mid-year transfers to Lyng Hall
Meetings are held with new pupils and their parents so that a personal programme can be developed.
One of our team of Associate Teachers has special responsibility for new pupils and will monitor their transition, attendance, punctuality and attainment. Moreover, pupils have regular interviews to informally discuss how they have settled. Making friends is easy with the right encouragement and Lyng Hall’s programme ensures academic and social success.
