Moving from primary to secondary school is the biggest move that a child will make in an educational setting.  Our transition program is truly outstanding and we endeavour to make the move as smooth and seamless as possible.  

Our dedicated team will initially visit each student in their primary school. We will then discuss the school with the students.  They then can ask any questions.  We would then speak with the primary staff to get a rounded picture of your daughter.

In the middle of July, we will invite new year 7 into school for a fun filled day where they can meet the staff, look round the school and take part in lessons.  

At DSTC we know that engagement with parents and carers is vital for an effective partnership to ensure your daughter settles in well.  We will also invite you in for a Q & A session.  

We will give you access to a huge store of helpful information that you can look at over the summer before your daughter starts - welcome video, parental booklet, Q & A for students and parents and summer transition work.

Near the end of summer we hold our amazing Summer School.  This is normally 3 days of art, dance, activities, fun and friendship.  We do charge a nominal fee.
