Check out the StepUp website

The new StepUp website has been online for the summer.  StepUp gives first years, and their parents, some information about what life will be like in secondary school and it’s broken down into eight simple sections:

  • How school works
  • Skills for school
  • Top tips from older students
  • You the student
  • Friendships and feelings
  • Staying healthy
  • Challenges of COVID19
  • You the parent


The website was developed as a small part of the overall Planet Youth project and has been getting a lot of use throughout the summer and in recent weeks.  Over 26,000 people have used the site and How school works, Top tips from older students and You the parent are the most popular sections.
