Transition to Year 8

In Dominican College, we recognise the importance of the transition from Primary to Grammar School. We strive to ensure that the induction process is a warm, supportive and motivating experience for our new Year 8 pupils. Below is an outline of our usual Induction programme beginning in June.

Year 8 Induction Programme

In keeping with the aims of our school, we take a holistic approach to the development of our pupils and have specific events and initiatives targeted at supporting our new pupils throughout the year. In Year 8 there are many opportunities to make new friends, form close relationships with sixth form mentors and celebrate success.
