If you are new to Ark Alexandra Academy and have questions, ask the Transition Ambassadors!
Monday 20 September 2021
The Transition Ambassadors are a group of students from Year 8 who recently took part in face to face training with the aim of working together to make the transition from primary school to secondary school a smooth one. They identify the types of problems that Year 7 students might experience and come up with some helpful solutions to tackle them. An example of a problem that was discussed was how the Year 7 students would feel on the first day, since it is the first day in secondary school. The solution was to visit primary schools prior to arriving in September but Covid put restrictions on this happening.
For the future they will be working on visits, and making how-to videos. The Transition Ambassadors meet once a month to discuss how they could improve the new school experience for Year 7 students.
