Moving Up

Below you will find six short videos introducing a different aspect of moving up to secondary school, with links to the activities to the right of each video. They can be done in the classroom or at home - don't worry if you don't have a printer at home, we've designed the activities so they can be done with just paper and pen or pencil. They are designed to be watched sequentially. 

If you've completed some or all activities, or watched any of the videos it would be really helpful if you could fill in a short survey about them. This helps us to develop the materials and may help us secure funding to be able to offer video programmes like this in the future. 

If you're a student and you've participated at home or school click here for your survey.

If you're a teacher and you've used these materials with your class click here for your survey.

If you're a parent who has supported their child with these activities and you have any comments, please email
