Transition to High School

Transition 2021

Due to face to face transition being cancelled this year, high schools are finding alternative ways to support children in their move from primary school to secondary.  elow we have provided the links the the local high schools websites.  You may find these links useful when helping your child to prepare for their new school.

The staff at North Walkden understand that this transition period can bring mixed emotions to the children as they embark on the next phase of their educational journey. In class, we will be working hard to ensure any anxieties and questions are answered for all children. Equally, we will share their excitements and offer them reassurance about this important change in their lives. 

High Schools are individually communicating with parents to advise about summer schools and any extra transition events they are putting in place to support learners:
