Transition can be a worrying time for both students and parents and an exciting time and we aim to make the process as smooth, informative and supportive as we can.  Each year we develop an Action Plan for those transitioning into the school and we share that with feeder schools.

We have students from Horton Lodge, Merryfields and many mainstream schools across Staffordshire, Stoke on Trent, Cheshire and sometimes further afield.

We do the same for those students leaving us on their next step of their journey onto college.  We have an Action Plan. We work closely with the next setting in the sharing of information about a students needs and interests and the Preparation for Adulthood work that they will have done whilst at Blackfriars to prepare them for the next step.

Colleges that we have a good relationship with are: Newfriars College, Newcastle college, Stoke college, Reaseheath and Regent to name a few.
