The transition from primary to secondary school is exciting for children and marks a new phase in their lives. Children recognise it as part of growing up and are aware that their lives are about to change in an important way, but like any change, it can also bring uncertainty.

Most children will manage the transition to secondary school successfully. However, there may be ups and downs. It’s easy for children to slip from feeling happy and confident one minute, to feeling nervous or anxious and back again as they find their feet.

Our Aims

QEGS has been educating boys for over 430 years – we understand what makes them tick.

We believe that the key to a successful transition from primary to secondary school, particularly for boys, is in inspiring every boy to find his own individual voice.

On Wednesday 28th June, we’d like to invite Year 4 and Year 5 children from our key partner schools to join us for a special event; HIS Story Matters.

The aim of the event is to support boys through their transition to secondary school by encouraging them to explore their thoughts and feelings; helping them to connect to a new school environment; building friendships and relationships; and empowering them by building their confidence and independence.
