Your Transition Passport 2020

Welcome to your Transition Passport. On this page you'll find lots of helpful resources to help you make the transition from your primary school to HAB.

Thank you so much to all of you that shared a copy of your first passport and challenges with us – it is great to meet you all and watch this space as we endeavor to answer your questions!

It was also great to ‘meet’ so many of you at the Transition Webinar on the 19th of May. You had some excellent questions, some of which are answered in this week's 'Respect' transition passport. ‘Respect’ is a Core HAB Value and something all HAB girls have – for themselves and for the HAB community.

We would love to see our new #HABGirls taking on the challenges in this week's passport, so please email me at to send me pictures or answers, or tweet us @HABermondsey using #HABTransition. You can download all the previous passports below too.
