We believe that students flourish in an environment where they are recognised and valued from the outset. For many years, we have worked with our local Primary Schools to develop a successful transition programme to help students with the move from their Primary setting to the great unknown that is Secondary School. By offering many opportunities for students to visit us and for our staff to deliver ‘taster lessons’ in the familiar setting of the students Primary Schools, students become more confident not only of the geographical environment into which they will move but also of the academic structures that they will encounter. In order to fully support this, we have a dedicated Head of Year 7 and transition, who has responsibility for ensuring that the move from Primary School to Secondary School is a positive experience for all of our students.
We hope that these short videos will provide you with a taste of life at Rodborough.
YEAR 5 MASTERCLASSES
We work closely with our local Primary Schools to ensure students in Year 5 have the opportunity to sample a variety of lessons at Rodborough. Students are invited ( via their Primary Schools ) to attend 'masterclasses' at held at Rodborough and our PE department invites students each term to take part in sporting activities.
YEAR 6 EXTRA CURRICULAR SESSIONS
Throughout May & June, we are delighted to provide those students who have been allocated a place at Rodborough, the opportunity to join an extra-curricular programme, prior to them joining in the Autumn term. This gives students the chance to meet their new peers, sample the activities on offer and meet our staff. Senior Rodborough students ( from Year 10 & Year 11 ) and current Year 7 students also visit our local Primary Schools to deliver assemblies and speak to Year 6’s who will be joining us in the Autumn Term.
YEAR 6 TRANSITION DAYS
Students who have been allocated a place to join us have the opportunity to partake in two Induction / Transition Days which are held in the Summer Term. This gives all the students the opportunity to meet their tutor for two whole days, orientate themselves with the site and experience lessons with us prior to their starting at the beginning of September.
We also offer ( by invitation only ) small group induction sessions for those students with extra anxieties where they can meet key staff who will then maintain close links with for their first year with us.
The two transition days for Year 6 students are Tuesday 2 July and Wednesday 3 July 2024. Students are required to attend both days.
