Transition to Primary
Pupils normally begin school aged 4½ and 5½. We have a close link with Cambusnethan Nursery class as children tour the school and visit classrooms throughout the year. We also have two formal induction days in May, where all pre-school children get to meet their teacher, complete activities in class, meet their buddies and have lunch at school.
Transition to High School
Pupils normally transfer between the ages of 11½ and 12½ so they will have the opportunity to complete at least 4 years of secondary education. We have close links to our feeder secondary school which is, –
