A year 6-7 summer programme aimed at smoothing the transition for children moving from primary to secondary school.

About us

The Big Step Transition Programme is an Ofsted Registered Year 6-7 summer programme aimed at easing the transition for children moving from primary to secondary school. 

Our programmes are delivered by passionate and inspiring teachers and take place for one week over the course of the summer holidays. We pride ourselves on providing new students with a smooth and extensive programme that enables students to 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.


Empowering children to arrive at school in September excited, confident and prepared for their new journey ahead.
