We welcome Primary 7 pupils to our Senior School setting at Old Anniesland in what is known as our Transitus Year.

The early move for our Primary 7 cohort to a Senior School setting enables pupils to have access to greater subject choices and to our specialist subjects, teachers and facilities. 

Joining in our Transitus year gives children a head start on the curriculum whilst also providing them the opportunity to spend longer finding the subjects they enjoy and are passionate about.

Our Transitus pupils enjoy...

  • A full timetable of 12 subjects, with a mix of rotational subjects including Business Management, Drama, Health and Food Technology, Mindfulness and Modern Studies.
  • Their own Form Class, with whom they spend the majority of their week, moving together between every class and subject, with all their pastoral needs overseen by their own specialist Transitus Form Teacher
  • Their own Sixth Year buddy who is available to help, to answer questions and look out for them through their first year at the Senior School.
  • Two Sixth year Form prefects assigned to their Form Class. Form prefects spend mornings and lunch with Transitus classes, getting to know pupils, lending a helping hand and being available to answer any questions, play games and take care of any issues, such as lost property or any other concerns Transitus pupils may have.
  • Being part of their assigned Senior School House. Upon joining, every pupil is allocated to a House. A pupil's House becomes like their family - they have support from Housemasters and Sixth Year Captains, as well as taking part in annual House events including fundraising, sports, games and trips. 
  • Taking part in weekly games afternoons and Saturday morning sports.
