As I explained to Year 8 this week …’making’ the transition as they leave Copthorne and ‘moving on’ to their new schools is important.

We all experience many transitions in life whether from school to uni, living at home to living in our own place, being single to being partnered, stepping into a new job or going from work to retirement. Acknowledging what we have learned from the past and understanding that it is OK to have different feelings as we manage the uncertainty or excitement of the future.

Year 8’s explored through reflection how they have grown and changed at Copthorne Prep. They talked about how they are feeling about next year, wrote down their thoughts, interviewed each other, drew their own metaphors and shared their personal outlook.

There will be some challenges sent home at the end of term.
