Differences between primary school and secondary school

  • The school site is large and you will need to move around independently to each lesson
  • There will be new rules to learn
  • A full and new school uniform
  • You will have many different teachers rather than just one or two
  • You will move from room to room for different lessons
  • You will be expected to carry bags and equipment from lesson to lesson, and will have the chance to get a locker
  • You will be responsible for a planner to record homework
  • You may have different subjects than you had at primary school
  • You may need to travel further to get to school, perhaps by bus or bike
  • You will need to be more independent at breaks and lunchtime
  • You will become more self-organised and independent
