Moving Up to Eckington School

We work closely with a range of primary schools in Years 5 and 6 within the area to ensure that we offer a quality transition programme from KS2 to KS3. Transition activities at Eckington School allow children to familiarise themselves with their new environment, make new friends, meet our staff and have many of their questions answered.

Take a look at the short clips below we created to answer common questions your child might have around moving up to secondary school. You can also have a look at our transition page on our website or flick through our Moving Up Guide below.
