Moving On aims to make a positive contribution to Year 6 and Year 7 pupils' transition to secondary education by showing them that change happens throughout life and can be a positive experience. This is often the first taste of university for pupils and so the programme is also designed to help raise aspirations. The programme has been designed to fit into the National Curriculum with links to English, Geography, Maths and PSHE.
The main components of the programme are:
The life ladder: Looking at changes that take place throughout a lifetime
Agony aunt: Hopes and fears for moving to secondary school
A campus tour: A guided campus trail completing questions along the way
Planning a day out: Becoming more independent by planning a hypothetical trip around London
Graduation: An opportunity to look at a graduation outfit and graduate from Moving On
"Well thought out and a really good day for raising aspirations for secondary school and aspirations for life. The ambassadors were very friendly and helpful; I hope the children will remember them when they think about their own future academic careers."
