What we do

THE learning journey

At Edith Kay Independent School we provide a clear transition during all stages of our community’s learning journey. Joining a new school community at any age provides new opportunities for our pupils. 
It can also be an anxious time for parents and young people alike so we work closely with families and key agencies to ensure every pupil’s transition is secure and stress-free.

key staff members

Pupils are normally then phased in during the first few weeks thereby enabling a smooth transition.
