Neston High School

Transition 2024

The transition from primary to secondary school is a very exciting time but can be an unsettled time too. At Neston High School, we strive to make this move as smooth as possible.
Following your place allocation in March, you will receive a welcome message and from here on regular communication from us via e mail and our school website.

Your child and their Year 6 teacher will meet our Transition Team in their primary school setting and may be visited by some of our student ambassadors who will be able to talk about life at high school and answer any questions. 
Our Induction Day for students and Induction Evening for parents take place in July, when students (during the day) and parents (in the evening) come into school to familiarise themselves with key staff who will support them during their time at Neston High School. 

Our Induction Day is when your child will spend time getting to know their Form Tutor and the other members of their form. They will also attend some ‘taster’ lessons to get a better idea of what it is like in the high school classroom. 
Other transition events follow as your child moves through the school; for example the Y7 Information Evening and Parents’ Evening.

Some young people join Neston High School part way through an academic year via the in-year transfer process. Please see the Admissions pages of the Cheshire West and Chester website for more information. In these circumstances, a personalised transition process for your child will be organised by our Pastoral Team.

At Neston, we pride ourselves on our high-quality care of our students. We are a truly comprehensive school and will make it our priority to give your child the best education and experiences possible at Neston High School.
