“Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works” (Matthew 5:16)

This page is dedicated to supporting to transition to secondary school. Moving from primary school to secondary school is both an exciting and slightly worrying time for children (and parents). We work closely with all secondary schools to try and enable a smooth transition. This year, we are being even more robust and creative in our efforts as a teaching community to ensure every child gets the appropriate support with preparing for secondary school. If you wish to discuss any transition arrangements with us as a school then please E-mail mr_glynn@beaconside.cumbria.sch.uk and we will happily discuss this further. 

Documents and appropriate information

We have included information that has been shared with us from both QEGS and UCC in order to ensure parents, carers and children can keep up to date with the latest transition arrangements. These will also be sent directly through to you from each school.  Use documents:
