The Perse School

Linking Project

A challenge. A comfort. A connection.

Our aim

The transition from primary to secondary education can be a big step. To help bridge the gap, we’d like you to take part in the Perse Linking Project.

The project is made up of a number of optional tasks from different departments (don’t worry – no-one at school gets to see the marks; it’s just you who finds out). These tasks are intended to give you and your parents a bit more knowledge about the Perse Upper and our curriculum, providing a link between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3.

You can have a go at as many or as few of the quizzes as you like – the only one that you definitely need to do is the Tutor Challenge task. This gives us a good opportunity to get to know you a bit better, and it allows you, our new Year 7s, to tell us a little bit about yourself and to show us what you can do. You can present the Tutor Challenge task in any format you wish: whatever you choose to produce, we’d like you to bring it in with you to the Familiarisation Morning in September.

Good luck – we hope it’s fun!

    Tutor Challenge

    You and your tutor will get to know each other really well once term starts: you’ll see them every day, and they’re the person to go and talk to about any successes, problems, questions, worries etc.

    However, we’d like you to help us get to know you, by taking part in the Tutor Challenge.
