Lessons had a totally different feel to those in the rest of the school."
Year 10 samples Sixth Form
Settling into Year 7
We want to ensure that transition from Year 6 is as smooth as possible. In the summer term of Year 6, we invite new girls into school for two days of orientation, fun activities and information, so that by September, they already feel that they belong at Putney. Year 7 also participate in a Team-Building day within the first few weeks, which consolidates those new friendships. Each student in Year 6 will also be visited in their Primary school by a member of our Senior Staff before the end of the Summer Term.
Moving from Senior School to Sixth Form
All girls in Year 10 are supported in this transition by a designated Transition Tutor, who meets with them regularly to mentor them through the important choices they have to make at this stage. We discuss potential A Level options, university aspirations and even potential careers, as well as keeping an eye on their progress during GCSEs. In the Summer Term of Year 10, the Year group participate in Taster Days so that they have a foretaste of what life in our Sixth Form is like.
