Transition

 
Ensuring our new students have the smoothest transition possible is something we value very strongly, and we are already looking into ways that we can stay in touch with your child before starting with us in September.

We can assure you that your child’s place with us is safe, and we ask that you complete the Admissions documents sent recently via post. We will be in touch about how to get these back to us once school has reopened.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr Mycock via email.

If your daughter has a Special Educational Need or Disability and you would like to discuss this further please email Mrs S Zarar ( Assistant Headteacher & SENCO).

All future correspondence will be via email, so please check your email regularly.

Take care and stay safe.

Welcome from the Headteacher

Whalley Range 11-18 High School is a popular and oversubscribed school and continues to be a very high performing girls’ high school. We work together with families, our local community, business partners and local universities to enhance our students’ education.

Getting to Know the Staff

At our transition events you would usually meet many of our staff, getting to know them before you start school in September. Unfortunately we have been unable to do that this year, however we have asked key members off staff to introduce themselves to you virtually.

Getting to School

We like to encourage our students where possible to walk or cycle to school. There are many health and environmental benefits attached to walking and cycling. Please use the links below for more information.
