Transition to Primary School

Preschoolers are gradually introduced to the organisation and discipline required for school by regular participation in activities with the whole Chilton Junior School. Integrated activities include assemblies, concerts, athletics days and the very popular Grandparents Day.

As part of their transition to School programme, all Preschool girls will have approximately seven to eight school visits in the Primary School on designated days from 8.00am – 12.30pm. Prior to every girl entering the Primary School, a meeting will be arranged for parents to meet with Lucy Bayliss, Head of Preschool and Michelle Hughes, Head of Primary School to discuss the Primary School curriculum, pastoral care system and learning programme.
