P7 Transition to Secondary

Dear P7 Parents/Carers

We have updated our website with the latest information about P7/S1 Transition. 


We will continue to add any more information here too in the coming weeks.

Kind Regards,

Ms J Presly Depute Head Teacher Boroughmuir High School

The Sports & Outdoor Learning Unit developed the Epic Days programme in response to P7 pupils having missed their residential experience this year due to the pandemic; the programme is designed to provide a flavour of the full residential experience in one extended Epic Day.

Due to the introduction of the temporary lockdown and Scottish Government’s timetable for return to Health Protection Levels it has been necessary to delay the start of Epic Days until 17 May. The result of this is that, regrettably, we do not have the capacity to accommodate all P7 classes in the Summer term. For feeder primaries of the Secondary Schools listed below, our intention is to offer the experience as an S1 event in the Autumn term. We will approach Secondaries early in the Summer term with this offer. This will fulfil our commitment to providing an offer to all schools over the next 6 months.
 Balerno
 Boroughmuir
 Craigmount
 Currie
 Queensferry
 The Royal High
The Autumn programme for Epic Days will follow an identical format to the summer programme; details are shown below.

 An extended day: 10am – 9pm
 Outdoor Learning Adventurous activities at Bonaly Scout Centre
 A mini expedition in the Pentland Hills
 Opportunities for personal challenge and connection with nature
 A hot evening meal and campfire experience
 Adventurous activities led by specialist qualified instructors with a maximum group size of 10
 All existing pupil groupings/bubbles maintained
 Enhanced cleaning protocols and risk management in place to protect staff and pupils
 No cost to school for cancellation due to Covid (See T&Cs at https://www.experienceoutdoors.org.uk/epic-days)
 Cost is £38 per pupil.
