Students take next steps

The British School in Tokyo honours graduates and students moving up

The start of summer signals the end of another school year. For some students, however, this is a period of transition to the next stage of life.

Year 13 students graduated from the British School in Tokyo (BST) on 12 June, and we are thank­ful to have been able to have a low-key cere­mony for them despite the challenges of the corona­virus pandemic. The speeches from the teachers and students were motivational, filled with nostalgia, emotion and power, and were a reminder that each graduate will always be a part of BST. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

Year 6 students will be moving on to secondary school and are currently in the process of meeting their new tutors, learning about their new curricu­lums and familiarising themselves with the next step. Head of Secondary James Thomas and Deputy Head of Secondary Duncan Grey led a very informa­tive webinar about the transi­tion process for Year 6 students and parents.
