About the Event
Transition from primary to secondary school involves many changes that can be both exciting and worrying to children and their families. Alongside the excitement of making new friends, being treated in a more adult way and learning new things, comes uncertainty about exactly what the new school will be like and worries about stricter teachers, more homework, not being able to make friends and being around older pupils.
