Transition Team



Transition process

The transition between primary school and secondary school can be daunting for young people and their parents. At Skegness Grammar School we do all that we can to make this process smooth by getting to know each student as well as possible during the months before term begins in September. From the student's first visit to their induction day in July we stay in touch and can help with any issues, questions or worries that the child or parent has. We visit the young people in their primary school and speak to their teachers, we look at their work and really get a picture of what we can do to make the students feel that moving on to secondary school is part of a continuation of their education rather than a completely new set of experiences and challenges.

Tutor Grouping

Students are placed in a tutor group of approximately 28 students when they join in Year 7 and become part of one of our four houses: Lumley, Magdalen, Newton and Tennyson.

The Form Tutor takes responsibility for their students and is the first port of call between home and school; they are the person that will make the initial contact with students on a daily basis and set the standard for the day ahead. In partnership with parents, they will aim to ensure all students are fully prepared to learn and progress within the school.
