P7 Transition

Prestwick Academy has five feeder primary schools:

  • Glenburn
  • Kingcase
  • Heathfield
  • Monkton
  • Symington

Transitioning from Primary 7 to secondary school can feel like a huge leap for young people and their families.  It can be exciting but overwhelming at the same time. Prestwick Academy staff have strong links with our primary colleagues to enable continuity in learning. Our Pastoral Care team liaise with our primary colleagues throughout the P7 transition year, sharing information on individual pupil progress. We host P7 events at various times throughout the year to enable them to familiarise themselves with the school, the varying learning environments, and to enable them to form new friendships. We have a three day transition programme in June and an enhanced transition for any of our young people who may be apprehensive about the move to secondary school.
