Transition to Secondary School

At Southglade, we take supporting our children with transition to Secondary school very importantly. Mr K Pegram is our lead with this and has produced this list to show what we do. We have also jointly produced this video with our local group of schools (Robin Hood, Westglade, Rise Park, Henry Whipple, Glade Hill, Top Valley Academy and Oak Wood Academy) as part of our working partnership (Aspire Learning Partnership).
