Transition Process

We understand that the transition from primary to secondary education can be both an exciting and challenging process for both students and families. Once you have chosen The Suthers School, we will provide a transition package, allowing your child to meet their peers, engage with staff, and begin to make lasting friendships.

Our transition arrangements are carefully planned to ensure that students are ready for a successful and enjoyable Year 7. If you have any questions regarding transition, at any stage of the process, please get in touch with the school on 01636 957690 or email

The Suthers School is increasingly popular and has become the school of first choice for students from a wide range of primary schools, including our feeder primary schools as well as out-of-catchment schools.

We will also offer a series of meetings for all prospective families, allowing you to develop a strong working relationship with the school staff and others — and that’s because we firmly believe that truly effective education should be about much more than a group of teachers working with a group of students and a group of families; it is about working as a team and striving together to achieve the same goal. That goal is to empower the young people of Newark and its surrounding communities to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
