For pupils in P7 making the transition to S1 at Portobello High School, it is an automatic process if you are in the catchment area.
The pupils begin the transition process from P6 making visits to PHS for curricular learning opportunities e.g. The Pizza Challenge for P6, Rights/ STEM based workshops in P7, the 3 day visit at the end of P7. Our P7 pupils also attend residential camp for a week which is an excellent preparation for increasing independence.

For transition from Nursery to P1, pupils come for familiarisation visits throughout the summer term to join in different activites e.g. attend an assembly, have an outdoor play session in the playground, visit for a storytime in the classroom. Parents of new P1 pupils are invited to attend an induction evening in June where information about the school and what to expect with your child starting school is given out.
