At Kelvinside Academy, the transition between primary and secondary stages is made seamless by a transition year known as Senior Prep. The Senior Prep experience is designed to prepare pupils of P7 age for the Senior School. They have their own classrooms and study Maths, English and Social Subjects with the class teacher. However, they go to subject specialists for Science, Computing, Modern Foreign Languages, Art, Music, Religious Studies, PSHE and Physical Education.
The Senior Prep year is a good entry point for pupils joining the school. It is the first of the three year experience from SP to S2 in which students follow a broad range of subjects as a general introduction to the senior curriculum. They also participate fully in the extra-curricular life of the Senior School.
