What happens next?

Sale High School encourages you to participate in the full transition programme outlined below.

You might also want to have a look at BBC Bitesize who have put together lots of information and videos about starting High School. The series offers practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.

Primary School Contact

Mrs A Jeffrey, Transition Lead will be contacting the primary schools to introduce herself and inform pupils what will be happening over the next few months.


Transition Evening

Parents are invited to attend our transition evening. During this session parents/carers will be asked to return the signed policy pack that has been sent home. This years transition evening will be held on 11th July.

There will be numerous presentations from our Headteacher and other members of the Senior Leadership Team.

We strongly encourage attendance at transition evening as we believe it is vital to ensure a smooth start to the academic year. Due to numbers, we will run two presentation slots on the evening. You will receive an email invite nearer the time, which will inform you of your slot and ask you to confirm your attendance.

Transition Day

Y6 students who have accepted a place with SHS will come and spend some time in school, meet some of our teachers and students and get a feel for the school. Transition day is usually the same date for all High Schools. Parents do not need to inform their current primary school that their child will be absent. Pupils should wear their primary school uniform.

Your first day at school

You will spend the morning with your form tutor and take a tour around the school. You will receive your timetable and other information you will need before you start your lessons in the afternoon.

School starts – Tuesday 3rd September 2024

Please arrive via the Dining Hall entrance.

If you have any more questions about starting at Sale High School or the transition process please get in touch with Mrs A Jeffrey, Transition Lead but you may find the answer to your question in our FAQs section.
