Year 6 Transition Mentoring Scheme

There are few more daunting prospects than moving school, but the change from primary to secondary education seems to make the whole transfer more intimidating. When I was in this position myself, I specifically remember the challenges I faced in my attempts to overcome the overbearing sense of anxiety that plagued my thoughts. Yet the year 7 boys at William Ellis have set up a mentor project that serves to make this entire process far less unnerving.

Having spent the day filming a workshop that they themselves conducted, the mentor scheme provides a reassuring message for boys that are moving to secondary school in the next academic year.

With the benefit of hindsight, the year 7’s of William Ellis provided a series of games and challenges for their juniors at Gospel Oak that they hoped would better ready them for secondary school, answering any questions they might have. Receiving advice from those who have recently been through the same transition should prove to be the perfect source of guidance and we wish all those moving schools the best of luck with the challenges ahead.
