At Longbenton High School we pride ourselves on a strong and successful transition programme. This allows our new students a smooth and enjoyable transition from primary school to Longbenton.
Our programme of transition is wide ranging and spans the full academic year. We work very closely with our feeder primary schools throughout the year as well as a number of opportunities for Year 6 students to visit Longbenton.
A number of our staff work in the primary schools on a number of exciting projects including ICT, Maths and Design and Technology. Our Modern Foreign Languages Department also spend time teaching in our primary schools.
