Transition to Year 8

In Dominican College, we recognise the importance and complexities of the transition from Primary to Grammar School. Our induction programme is specifically purposed to enable our Year 8 pupils to adjust to their new school surroundings, new routines and new aspects of learning.

Year 8 Pastoral Care

Our commitment to the holistic development of our pupils is demonstrated through the range and variety of specific pastoral support initiatives we offer throughout Year 8 outlined below. Our pupils enjoy many opportunities to make new friends and form close relationships with their tutors, subject teachers and sixth form pupils as mentors and prefects. We remain adaptable and responsive to the needs of our pupils and hope that Year 8 is a memorable year in Dominican College, laying the necessary foundations that will enable each pupil to fulfill their full potential over the years spent with us.
