Transition to Hamilton School is personalised according to need. Many of our students need a gradual transition back into school and schooling and time to adjust to a new environment, new curricular demands and new peers.  Some children join us during, rather than at the beginning, of the school year. We can accommodate this as part of the personalised programme for your child. At the traditional academic transition points we may invite children to spend a short amount of time with us at the end of the school day when the majority of students have left.

We ran a summer school for our current year seven children which was well supported.

Above all, we like to get transition right in order that our students feel confident and able to begin to build trusting relationships and feel successful from the time they know they will be joining us. All students have a full-time place and will work towards this whatever their transition starting point is.

We have increasingly good links with our partner schools and involve them in transition work. We welcome visits from prospective parents; please contact the school office to make an appointment with the SENDCo, Jill Corfield.
