In February 2019, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) released their evaluation conclusions that students in schools which have implemented this flexible programme, co-designed between SSAT and Dylan Wiliam, made the equivalent of two months’ additional progress at GCSE.

As this year’s round of open day and evening events begin, SSAT’s Head of Primary Networks Laura Burton reviews some of the research and literature on transition and talks to the transition team at Eltham Hill School about the transition journey for students at their school.
