Transitioning to Year 7

Our transition programme makes the journey from primary school to being part of the MGGS community as smooth as possible

Every year we are extremely excited to welcome another cohort of students to begin their own MGGS journey. We understand that moving from your primary school can be a stressful experience and so over the years we have honed an established transition programme that aims to make this big and important shift from primary to secondary education as smooth and peaceful as possible. We plan lots of fun and exciting events in the build-up to starting with us so that you can begin to feel more at home in our buildings and get to know our staff and teachers. We hope that at these events you will also meet your new classmates and make new friends. These events include welcome evenings, taster days, workshops, quizzes, competitions, and our Marchants Hill activity weekend.
