We work closely with our partner primary schools to make sure that the transition from primary to secondary is both smooth and successful.
The school will work closely with teachers from Year 6 to prepare pupils for the transition process and to ensure that there is no disruption to an individual pupils progress.
We have two dedicated members of staff who work within the pastoral team. They work with pupils in primary schools to build up pupils confidence when coming to Malet, and liaise closely with Year 6 teachers.
Throughout the academic year pupils from all of our ten partner primary schools will visit Malet Lambert to work in school and take part in workshops to help prepare them for life at secondary school.
We organise a number of fun, educational workshops with our local partner primary schools. These are delivered by award-winning social enterprise Engaging Education and involved children working together to produce a publication about Malet Lambert, sometimes in their own classrooms, sometimes in ours. This helps develop familiarity with Malet and enables them to explore the subject of moving on to secondary school in an enjoyable way.

During the Autumn term we invite families from our partner primaries to a coffee morning where they can learn about Malet Lambert in a relaxed and open setting.
