Grade 6 to Year 7

Moving from primary to secondary school is a big step for any young person. New subjects, new teachers, new structures and new friends add up to some big new challenges. We want to help make that experience both comfortable and exciting. That's why we've made this video. It consists of real people, young and older talking about what it means, how to prepare and how to make the most of it. We hope it will help make the transition the best it can possibly be.
