Moving to a new school can be a daunting prospect and one that can evoke excitement and nerves for both parents and students alike. At Batley Grammar School, we pride ourselves on providing our new students and parents/carers with a smooth and successful transition from primary to secondary school, enabling students to feel confident and comfortable as they embark on this new and exciting phase of their education. We work closely with our feeder schools to inform and guide the support offered to each child.

Our aims and outcomes for the transition programme are:


  • Build on and compliment foundations built at primary school
  • Provide students with a flavour of Batley Grammar school
  • Preparation for change
  • Confidence building
  • Working as a team

We deliver a well-established transition programme consisting of a series of visits, activities events. Please refer to the ‘transition timeline’ shown below for a summary of our transition programme.
