Welcome to The Transition Zone

We are delighted that you have taken an interest in our school and are considering us as one of your Secondary School choices; we hope that you are successful and are very excited to meet you in the very near future.

As we are all aware we are experiencing very 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 below it is designed 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 and lessons, giving you a taste of life here at The Barlow.

This year our transition programme is starting virtually with our Christmas competitions below. These will be followed by virtual lessons that primary schools will be able to deliver to students giving them a flavour of school life at a time where we are unable to invite pupils into our school.

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