Year 7 and 8 students at Glenroy College are supported in their transition from Primary School to Secondary School through a well-balanced curriculum as well as strong Personal Learning Program. To ensure the students are well supported, in most cases, the English teacher at Year 7 & 8 is also their Humanities teacher and the Maths teacher is also the Science Teacher.
