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.


Have a Question?

We realise that moving to secondary school can be both an exciting and worrying time and that Parents/Carers and Students will have a lot of questions about this process. Throughout the next 6 months we aim to answer your questions to ensure you have all the information you need to make a positive start to your new school. We will release our first Parent FAQ and Student FAQ videos on Monday 15th March, answering questions submitted by yourselves.

Ask us whatever you like via our Contact Form.
