Transition to High School


We pride ourselves on the preparations we make for our Year 6 children to transition to their chosen High School. 

After their time in St Giles, we believe our children have developed as independent, inquisitive, resourceful and polite young people, ready for their move to Year 7.


We have excellent relationships with several High Schools in the area, and those schools each offer their own transition package. 


Over the years, the children in our Year 6 classes have moved on to a variety of different High Schools.


Below you can see where our Year 6 have chosen to move to over the last few years.
