Moving from Primary to Secondary School

Welcome to our guide to starting secondary school.

At Felpham Community College, we aim to work in partnership with parents in securing the best education and in enabling your child to become the very best that they can be. We understand that the move to secondary school can be an anxious time for both children and parents. Many families share similar concerns surrounding this transition. This booklet has been prepared to help you and we hope that it will answer some of the questions you may have.

As parents are no longer able to pop into the playground and see one central class teacher, they can sometimes feel cut off from the secondary experience. This booklet aims to demystify the start of secondary school and to reassure you that we are always just a phone call, email or visit away.

I look forward to working with you in the future.
