School Transition 2023
Welcome to St Cecilia's - Your new school
Transition is an exciting but daunting time for everyone moving up to secondary school. It is our mission here at St Cecilia’s to make this transition as seamless as possible, removing many of the natural worries and anxieties that pupils may feel.
