Transition

We are committed to getting the best deal for every single student that leaves our doors.Washington School
Here at Washington School we aim to make transition throughout the School as easy and seamless as possible. We have an excellent primary transition programme starting in Year 1 at primary school and supporting the students all the way in to Year 7 at secondary school.

We also offer an extensive transition programme between Years 8 and 9, when students are choosing their options and making the switch to studying key stage 4 courses. Each student will undergo an individual meeting with their parents and the head of progress to select the courses most suited to them. This enables our students to get off to the best start with their GCSE’s and ensures they reach their maximum potential by the end of Year 11, ready for the next step in their lives.

The school works closely with Connexions and our Year 11 students to guarantee that each student leaves Washington School with a firm idea of their next steps, whether that is full time employment, further education or an apprenticeship. Our partnership with Sunderland College gives our students direct access to AS & A Level education and the application process is fully supported by us.

We are committed to getting the best deal for every single student that leaves our doors.
