Year 7 Transition Leaders

Year 7 transition leaders aim to support Year 6 pupils on induction days and later when these pupils start at RSHS act as buddys. The transition leaders allow for new pupils to have a friendly face who they are able to talk and ask questions to.

Transition leaders have to apply for their position and are interviewed by the Head of Year and Pastoral Leader.
