Transition 2019

All students who applied to attend Staughton College for Year 7 in 2019 will be notified by their primary school in early August and received an information pack from the college in late August 2019.

As part of the transition process into Year 7, Staughton College tests all students in Year 6. On Demand Testing provides us with valuable information regarding your child’s literacy and numeracy strengths. The information we receive from this testing helps us to determine the appropriate strategies, class groupings and education needs for your child. All students expected at Staughton in 2019 are required to attend ONE of the testing sessions as part of their enrolment. The tests will run for 1.5 hours.  Further information about On Demand testing dates for 2019 will be announced in the information back received by parents in late August.
