At The Malling School we are committed to ensuring the transition from primary to secondary school is a happy, exciting and smooth one. We want your child to feel they know the school, teachers and students before September and have an established packed transition programme in place to ensure they feel part of The Malling School from the moment they hear their application has been successful.

For pupil transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3, the school’s procedure is as follows:

  • From April onwards we will visit all our feeder primary schools to meet teachers and pupils and discuss their needs.

  • In July we will hold 2 induction days at The Malling School. This will be a day full of activities and taster lessons.

  • Every year we hold a summer school for our new students. We provide many activities to boost confidence, increase social skills and provide a fun learning experience. It is designed the help with transition and allow pupils to get used to the school and prepare them for September.

We are very happy that you have chosen The Malling School and look forward to meeting you soon.
