In Years Five and Six parents start to think about the next school for their children. The vast majority of our pupils move on up to our Senior School.
All Springfield pupils will have interacted with staff from the Senior School many times over the years. They will have used RGS facilities for a number of activities, and with many familiar faces will feel comfortable in the larger environment. Former Springfield pupils often pop back to say hello and visit more formally to answer questions from current pupils and to help allay any worries.
During Year Six visits to the Senior School happen termly, including opportunities to experience lessons using some of the specialist rooms such as Science, Art and Textiles or the Language laboratories. Our children will also be invited to lunch, enabling them to become familiar with the Senior School’s routines and there they can mix with other children joining Year Seven. They meet their new Form Teachers, will be shown around the school and see their classrooms and cloakrooms.
One thing is guaranteed; pupils start to feel excited and energised by the expectation of moving on to the Senior School as they appreciate its opportunities in all parts of school life.
