RESEARCHERS from London's Imperial College and St Thomas' Hospital state that transferring to secondary school is "a well-recognised stress requiring both physical and psychological adaptation" (TES, March 3). Action for ME (www.afme.org.uk) welcomes this report because there has been so little research on this subject to date. We are keen to work with authorities, schools, children and their families to tackle these concerns.
