Treorchy Comprehensive School

Our Cluster of Schools

 

Pupils are admitted to the school in natural progression from the following Primary Schools:

 

           Bodringallt Primary School             

           Gelli Primary School

           Parc Primary School

Treorchy Comprehensive also collaborates with Ton Pentre Infants School as part of the Cluster of Schools.

 

Many pupils transfer to the school from other English and Welsh medium primary schools, subject to availability of places.

 

Transition/Pontio

 

Over the years close links have been developed between the primary feeder schools and ourselves. They help to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary education.

 

During the Summer Term Year 6 meet the Assistant Headteacher and the Guidance and Learning Support Officer for Year 7 prior to spending a full day at Treorchy during which the pupils follow a timetable and spend a break and lunch time alongside their future colleagues from other primary schools.

 

There are also transition links in a variety of different subject areas including English, Maths, Science, Welsh, Modern Foreign Languages and Physical Education.

 

Another highlight of the calendar is the Transition Concert in which pupils from Year 6 have their first opportunity to perform on the stage at the Main Hall.

 

If you have any queries about transition, then please contact Mr H James, Assistant Headteacher.
