P7 Transition

Welcome to our Braes Cluster Primary 7 Transition page!

We were really looking forward to welcoming you, and your parents/carers, to Braes High School throughout this year to introduce to your school, our staff and some of your fellow pupils. Unfortunately, we are not able to see you in school at the moment so we thought it would be good to have one place where you can come to find lots of information and activities that will help you get to know our school before you join us in August.

New resources will be added to this page regularly and I will stay in contact with your primary school teachers so that they can help you too.
I hope you enjoy the activities we provide and I look forward to meeting you all as soon as I can!

P7 Transition 2021

23 April 2021

Dear P7 pupils / parents
I hope you all had a lovely holiday and are excited to be back in school for Summer term, I know we are really happy to have all of our secondary pupils back in school this week!

In the coming weeks we have a number of resources that will be coming out to you to help you further prepare for your transition to Braes High School after the Summer, please remember to check this page where you can find everything that we are sharing through our primaries, and we hope to be able to offer some further live interactions for pupils and parents.

To start this term our Head Teacher, Mr Livingstone, wanted to write to you all so I have attached his letter. We have also arranged a STEM based activity pack through Fife College which will be coming to you through your primaries (or delivered to our young people who are not in a cluster primary) at some point over the next week or two, I hope you enjoy completing the activities included.

Hi to all of our P7 pupils and families

Our Pastoral Heads have been visiting our P7 cluster classes over the last couple of weeks and our young people have been asking lots of good questions so I thought it would be a good idea to answer some of the questions so everyone has the answers.

Because of the current circumstances we don't have the answers to some of your questions and for others, we will be sending you information next term but I will try to answer the ones that lots of people asked.

Have a lovely holiday!
Miss Wilkinson

We would normally gather information from our young people and families during your visits to the school so we need to do that in a different way this session and while we are working hard with our cluster primaries we need your help this year too.

Please complete the form which you can access from the link below and include any questions you would like us to answer in our inputs over the coming weeks.

Hi Braes High School Primary 7 pupils and families

Now that you have been given the opportunity to see and hear about the subjects that you will study in Braes High School, I thought it would be good for you to see an S1 Braes High School timetable.

The timetable not only tells you about your subjects, teachers and classrooms but also gives you information about our school day; when the school day starts, break and lunch times and when the school day ends.

Please try to answer the questions that have been given to help you practice with the timetable.
I have also included some extra challenges for you to try for fun!

Braes HS Timetable and Challenges

More videos and information will be sent out this term and the Summer term and pupils will get the chance to meet staff from Braes and ask questions. I will also be sending out a form to gather questions and information from families.
