What is Transition?

Transitions at Uplands is about moving on to the next stage of life, developing new friendships and being confident. 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 you move on.

The Transitions team will be there to help you settle into the school, move into new classes as you grow up and help you when you are getting ready to leave school. The team will be there to help you find out about different choices in your life such as what you would like to do when you leave school.

We will help you and your family find out about different options such  as work, college, living in the community, leisure and making friends.

Please read through our School Document which will help you get a feel for if our school meets the needs of your young person.

Please contact our Transitions Team on 01793 493910 for more information.
