Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Transition Centre

"There is one way to look at something, until someone shows us how to look at things with different eyes".  (Pablo Picasso).

Hola , Ciao, خوش ,مرحبا, bună, Olá, hello!  Welcome to our Transition Centre!

The Transition Centre is a smaller learning environment where nurturing confidence and inspiring a love of learning is at the heart of all that we do. We provide targeted and personalised support for each of our students to ensure that they make accelerated progress and are able to access Key Stage 3 mainstream lessons as soon as possible. 

Most of the students supported by the Transition Centre are new to English or have a special educational need. We believe that all of our students are capable of exceptional things, as such they all study quality literature including Oliver Twist, Sherlock Holmes and A Midsummer Nights Dream. They explore these texts through drama, guided reading and creative writing. Alongside our personalised curriculum we deliver several interventions including Fresh Start phonics, precision teaching and Lexia and EAL vocabulary interventions.

Our Y9 ASDAN students are doing a fabulous job with their personal journey pieces of artwork for their expressive arts short course. Some students have chosen to portray their personal journeys with paintings, and other students are writing a song. They look and sound amazing! We can’t wait to be able to show off the finished pieces.
