Moving Up 2023 – Secondary School Information For Year 5

 Tower Hamlets Transition Support Service advocates early intervention to support children, young people and their families with information and advice at key points of transition to help manage change and make informed decisions about the next steps of their learning journey.

The move to secondary school is an important moment both for children and their parents. It offers all sorts of new opportunities, but it also can cause anxiety and confusion, so it’s vital parents have as much information as possible in order to make an informed decision about their child’s future.

To support families with the secondary transfer process the Transition Support Service are holding online advice sessions for current year 5 parents/carers:  


Tuesday 28th June  - 10 am

Wednesday 29th June  - 1 pm

Monday 4th July – 6 pm

Wednesday 6th July – 10 am
