Transition to Eden Boys’
The transition from primary to secondary school is an important milestone in the lives of children and their families. At Eden Boys’ Bolton we pride ourselves on providing our new students, parents and carers with a smooth and detailed transition programme where students arrive on their first day in September excited about the next chapter of their education, rather than feeling apprehensive.
This new year 7 cohort is extra special as they will be transitioning in quite exceptional and unprecedented circumstances. Nonetheless, we have and will take every step to ensure this is a smooth and welcoming transition as year 7 students begin their Journey at secondary school.
We want all students who choose our school to develop new friendships, their faith and character, improve their confidence and get used to their new routines and school procedures with great ease. We aim to enrich students’ learning experience by providing them with opportunities and challenges, along with the practical skills and knowledge to be confident, well-qualified, rounded, grounded and holding high aspirations in terms of employment, training, or for the next steps in their education.
Effective help provided by the school at the start of the new term can play a significant role in the success of the transition process. Students who experience a successful transition, typically, greatly expand their friendships, and display higher levels of self-esteem and confidence once at secondary school. They also settle well into school life, demonstrate greater levels of interest and work. Here at Eden Boys’ Bolton we have a personalised approach to ensure we adapt and cater for the needs of the young men.
We pray this is a start of a successful and fruitful journey where the parents, school and students work together to ensure the students that join us grow from young boys into respectful young men, ready to serve their community and be leaders of the next generation.
