Educational Fun

Raynes Park High School was bursting at the seams on three days last week when a fleet of Route Master Buses brought 1300 Year 4 and Year 5 pupils from 14 local primary schools to enjoy a taste of secondary school life.

The Transition Days were the culmination of a year-long programme unique to Raynes Park High that aims to make the transition from primary to secondary school less daunting. It also showcases the different subjects students will be taught in secondary School.

The children participated in a range of classes including Business Enterprise, Product Design, Science, Catering, ICT, Drama and Media which were a great hit with the primary pupils.

Feedback from teachers was extremely positive:“the students loved it all, but possibly cooking the best"

"full of value and interest for our pupils, they have had a great taste of secondary school!”

Mr Wheatley said, “We had a large team involved with the organisation of the three activity days including our own Year 7 students. It was extremely rewarding for us all to see such high levels of enthusiasm, especially when the primary pupils were enjoying subjects for the first time. We look forward to welcoming even more primary pupils next year for a taste of life at Raynes Park High School”


Visiting schools were: West Wimbledon, Burlington, Cranmer, Hatfeild, Hollymount, Liberty, Poplar, Priory, Hillcross, Lonesome, Joseph Hood, Malesbury, Wimbledon Chase and Green Lane Primary Schools.
