Transition from Primary School : Page 3

The transition process is under constant review by Headteachers, Year 6 and 7 staff and via pupil and parent consultation.


If you wish to make a comment or need further information please contact the school. Otherwise we look forward to meeting you and your child at the transition events.

Visits to Bryn Hafren Comprehensive.

Please Note : An additional Transition Day in July has now been added to the calender.


Visits to Bryn Hafren Comprehensive are arranged for all pupils in years 5 & 6.


Visits are designed to allow pupils to experience subject areas as well as visiting with parents to see the school in action.  


The school provides information in the form of a school prospectus which includes a DVD, written information booklet on all subjects taught in Bryn Hafren and at the Home School Agreement a final booklet with all important information for new parents.


As a result of the recent perception survey some new strategies have been put in place to assist your daughters’ transition:


• Pupils are to be given maps of the school


• A book will be available in your daughter’s Primary School from May onwards which gives both pupils and year 6 teachers more information about life in Bryn Hafren.
