Children

Sophia - "I like the way it was made by children for children - they understood what it was like to be going to secondary school and know a lot about it . . . I thought the teachers would be really stern but it showed they were really kind like in Primary."

Isabella - "The Homework section was interesting - it made it clear how much homework you’d have and I felt better because I was worried that I might not be able to keep up . . . the Head Teacher was reassuring because he was saying that there’s always someone there to help you . . . I thought it helped us to feel better about some subject we were worried about."

Rosie - In the Responses, the children don’t just say “don’t worry” - they explain things well with lots of information. This was good because if something happens, you know what to do . . . I didn’t know there were so many subjects in Secondary School."

Ella - "I really like the way it’s presented - - - the drawings are all children’s drawings. They’re done by different children in different styles."
