Welcome to The Barlow Transition Day Programme of Events

We are delighted that you have chosen to become a valued member of our school; we are very excited to meet you in September.

As we are all aware we are still experiencing some different times in education with Covid-19 however we endeavour to make this experience as informative and fun as possible. Please view our comprehensive transition programme of events below; it has been created to support your Transition to high school here at The Barlow.

Transition is very important to us, we provide transition opportunities to our primary school pupils throughout the school year. We run events and competitions for all primary school students to get involved in, providing opportunities for primary school pupils to sample high school work, giving you a taste of life here at The Barlow. We have provided virtual competitions and lessons this academic year and hope moving into 2021-22 school year we may be able to progress to our usual way of operating where we get to see lots of lovely faces.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are unable to find the information you need on our Transition Zone. We look forward to meeting you and hope that your time with us will be stimulating, challenging, exciting and, above all, ENJOYABLE!
