What is Transition?

Transition at Uplands is about moving on to the next stage of life, developing new friendships and being confident. This could mean transition to a new school, a new class or a new phase of education. It is about being able to settle well into a new routine, class and environment and show an interest in new people, places and things. At Uplands we have a Transitions Team to help our students move on, in whatever form that takes.

The Transitions Team are here to help students settle into the school, move into new classes as they move through the school and help when it’s time to leave school.

When the time comes, we help our students and their families find out about different options for moving into adulthood, such as work, college, living in the community, leisure and making friends.

Many of our students choose to move on to Horizons College, part of Brunel Education, a subsidiary company of Brunel Academies Trust. Horizons College have open days throughout the year. For more information, please visit the Horizons College website by following the link Horizons College
