Transferring from Primary to secondary school can sometimes be stressful and daunting. At Madani Boys School we aim to make this process as smooth as possible so that your child will find this process as exciting and stress free as possible.
During the Spring term, staff from Madani Boys School will visit students in their primary school. Staff will be able to talk to year 6 pupils about the transition process and answer any questions that may arise about the transition process and starting secondary school.
In June of year 6, your child will attend Madani Boys School for two days to experience school life, meet their new form tutor and fellow tutees.
We would be pleased to hear from any parent of a year 6 child who may have some questions or concerns about the process..

Year 6 | Prospective Transition Arrangements | Madani Boys/Girls School | 2022-23 Entry
Dear Parent/Carer and Future Madani Student,
It is with great pleasure that I write to you about our Madani Transition arrangements as we welcome you to our learning community. You are joining one of the most oversubscribed and best performing schools in the city in both academic and pastoral measures.
The transition from primary to secondary school is a landmark moment in your life - the move to a new school, with new teachers, staff, routines, surroundings and friends is an exciting time. However, feedback from young people and parents/ carers nationally informs us that transition can also be challenging, involve a period of adaptation and for some a degree of anxiety.
Our aim is to work together to ensure that your child is ready to start their five-year journey in August and enjoy a worry-free summer holiday, happy and confident to return as a Madani student.
