‘The Big Step’ summer transition programme provides young people with the support they need so their transition from Primary to Secondary School is a success.

The programme is delivered by teachers and will take place at Isca Academy from 23 – 27 August 2021. We pride ourselves on providing new students with a smooth and extensive programme where students arrive on their first day of school excited about the next chapter of their education, rather than feeling apprehensive about the journey ahead of them.

The Programme is both educational and fun with curiosity central, to inspire students to learn. The timetable is interactive, challenging and has clear outcomes. There is a clear focus on identifying the needs of each student and then working with them to maintain their literacy and numeracy levels so that gains in primary school are not lost in transition.
