Primary Transition

The jump from P7 to S1 can be an exciting but challenging time so we hope this page will help to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Transition Events

Each year we organise a number of events to help familiarise P7 pupils with high school life. These include departmental visits to our catchment primary schools, a Parental Information Evening and a two-day visit to Kinross High School for our new S1s.
