P7 Transition

Welcome to the Transition Page for Penicuik High School’s P7 Transition for Session 2023-24

On this page you will find information relating to all aspects of P7 Transition and new information for those seeking information or planning to join us in session 2023-24.

Primary 7 Transition can be a time of great excitement but also one of nervousness or uncertainty.  At Penicuik High School we aim to make the Transition process as smooth as possible for all the young people who will be joining us. To achieve this we work closely with our primary colleagues both in our cluster primary schools (Cornbank Primary, Cuiken Primary, Strathesk Primary and Sacred Heart Primary) but also with colleagues across the region and beyond. Transition working begins in early September and continues through to when the students finally join us in August.

The following members of staff will be working with our cluster primary schools:

Lead Transition

Leigh Wood – PT Support and Inclusion Department (SAID)

Cornbank Primary School

Ms Alison Colquhoun – Support for learning teacher SAID

Mr Stephen Milligen – Principle Teacher of Guidance (PTG)

Between now and beginning of March each Primary will visit for a tour of the school. We will also post all important information for parents and students on our P7 Transition News page as it is sent out to primaries. This will include letters to parents and school information. Please check back regularly for updates.
