Transition from Year 2 to Year 3

Moving from one school to another can be an emotional time for many children and parents and both Hampton Wick Infant and Nursery School and St. John the Baptist Juniors work closely to ensure a smooth transition. there is a keen partnership between the schools with an excellent transition package, close staff liaison and two headteachers who have the same philosophy to education: high standards, fun and creativity. Both schools host Open Days for prospective families. We invite you to visit our link junior school so that you can se that although we are two schools, we provide one seamless learning journey.

As we approach the summer term, Year 2 children are ‘buddied’ with a Year 5 child, throughout the summer term the children share a variety of experiences including watching key productions at both schools, reading with their buddies at St. John the Baptist. This culminates in a full Transition Day in July where the children will the day with their buddies and their new teachers enjoying fun activities together.
