Welcome to RFSS Transition!
Starting your child's journey to secondary school.
Hello! My name is Mrs Bethan Austen and I am the KS3 Raising Standards Leader at Rugby Free Secondary School. Part of my job is to oversee the transition process for all our Year 6 students prior to their start with us in Year 7. Throughout the rest of this year I will be in contact with primary schools, with parents and with prospective students to ensure their move to RFSS is a smooth, successful and supportive transition.
To do this I will be creating our own RFSS Transition TV with blog posts and new videos released on a monthly basis between now and the end of the academic year. In these blog posts and Transition TV 'episodes' I will be sharing top tips, key information and news about transition. I will also be interviewing current staff and students to give an insight into what life is like here as a student at RFSS and for current Year 7 students to share their voice on what it was like to start here.
Please find below the first episode of our Transition TV and some snippets from assemblies I've been delivering to local primary schools.
Episode 1: Welcome!
