Transition Group

The aim of the Transition Class is to help students coming into Year 7 develop the basic social, literacy and numeracy skills needed to succeed at Hinchley Wood School.  Typically, students will be admitted to this group when we believe their literacy and/or numeracy skills need additional support for them to achieve to the best of their ability.  There are normally 13-15 students in the Transition Group and the decision to offer a place is made in consultation with all parties, including parents. 

Transition Group students will be part of a mainstream Year 7 tutor group.  They will, however, have their maths and most literacy based subjects together, usually in their own Transition Room.  Where possible, students will have other lessons outside the core subjects in the relevant departments.  PE and Technology lessons will be in mainstream mixed ability classes.

The goal is for all Transition Group students to move into mainstream mixed ability classes by the end of Year 7.  When this happens will usually depend upon literacy levels and be determined by assessments conducted by the Transition Group class teacher.  A small number of students may stay in the Transition Group for additional literacy input throughout Year 7 and only join their tutor groups for some extra subjects.  Arrangements for this small group may vary from year to year, subject to the needs of the students and timetabling requirements.

If it is felt that there is a need for a personalised curriculum in Year 8 and beyond, this will be discussed in school and with parents before it is put into place. 

Mrs Mansell co-ordinates the Transition Group and will teach many of the lessons.
