Key Dates for Students joining us in September 2019 ( Published: 13/03/2019)

Important information and key dates for parents/carers of new intake students, who are joining us in September 2019.

Please note that if you have not already done so, it is important that you register your acceptance of the offer made for your daughter for enrollment in September 2019 as soon as possible by contacting us on 0161 860 2992.

We are delighted that your daughter has been offered a Year 7 place for September 2019. September may seem a long way off but preparations for the admission of your daughter are already well underway.

Via post, you should have received a letter, a copy of our Whalley Range admissions form for you to complete, and our parental information booklet. Please read these carefully to familiarise yourself with the expectations of your daughter’s new school.

In order to assist us in ensuring that your daughter’s transition is as smooth as possible, we would like to speak to your daughter’s Year 6 teacher about friendships, behaviour, celebrations and concerns. Please refer to the letter which provides further information about this and then sign the consent form to be returned to your daughter’s Year 6 Teacher. Please also review our Privacy Notice, which explains how we collect, process and store information about you and your daughter.

As always, we would like the transition from Primary to Secondary school to be as smooth as possible and, with this in mind, we would like to draw your attention to the following dates for your calendar.

Welcome to Whalley Range Evening

The Welcome to Whalley Range Evening on Monday 18th March, 2019 is very informal. You will have the opportunity to listen to a presentation by Mrs Hole, Headteacher, ask questions and have a student led guided tour of the school.

Please bring along your completed Whalley Range admission form to this event. You will be able to meet with a member of Senior Leadership Team to review your completed form, clarify any further points or issues you may have and ensure any further support that your daughter may need is in place before the New Intake Student Days.

New Intake Student Days

On the New Intake Days, your daughter will be given the opportunity to experience what it is like to be at secondary school by following a taster timetable, meeting a number of her subject teachers and making friends with fellow students.

Parents/Carers Evening

Following the New Intake Students Days, you are invited to attend the Parents/Carers Evening, where you will be introduced to our Academy Headteacher, Mrs Hole, members of the Senior Leadership Team, Heads of House and key Heads of Subjects. There will also be a school uniform stall so that orders for school uniform can be placed.
