Transition from Primary School

The move from primary school to Quintin Kynaston is supported by an outstanding transition programme with a dedicated team of staff working to ensure all students become successful QK citizens.

Our Year 7 Opening Minds curriculum is designed to develop the necessary skills that students will need to become more independent learners now that they are at secondary school, but also in preparation for university, the world of work and parenthood.  To build on what the students have already learnt in Year 6, we have recruited some experienced primary trained teachers.

Their role is key to ensuring continuity of progress by designing and delivering lessons that ensure a love of learning is maintained whilst additional challenge is provided. We also believe that proficient numeracy and literacy skills are at the heart of successful transition and we have excellent programmes to develop students’ skills and understanding, whatever their ability, to ensure progress and success at QK.
