Transition Year 2020-21
This year there are lots of opportunities offered to our students to help them develop and mature into young adults, and to guide them towards their future career paths.
While visitors in, trips out and work experience are on hold for now, teachers continue to be innovative and creative, endeavouring to do their best to make this a great year for our students. Our staff work very hard for and contribute so much to the TY programme. It is now up to each TY student to play their part! It can be a busy, enjoyable and challenging year for students.
