Transitions: Welcome to Winterhill

 Mrs H Cooper

Senior Transitions Coordinator  


Year 6/7 transitions Update September 2020

To all our new Y6 students and parents,


Students - We would like to welcome you all as our newest prospective students, and look forward to working with you more for your transition to Winterhill.  I am missing coming in and working with you in your primary classes, and look forward to that being in place again soon.

Parents - Thank you so much for entrusting us with the next stage in your son/daughter's educational journey, and we would like this to be a positive collaboration between us throughout.  

Please be assured that, regardless of school closures, we are working behind the scenes to gather information about your sons/daughters from their primary class teachers, and have been doing so since September 2019. 

At this stage we would also like to gather important information from yourselves via our transitions pack. Please click the link above to complete this pack and return to us at by 1st July 2020.

In the meantime, as we do not have your email information, please do not hesitate in contacting us directly,  if you have any questions or want to share any information with us.


We look forward to being in contact with you soon, and rest assured that we aim to make the transition for your son/daughter the smoothest we can, so any information or questions that you have are most welcome.


We have produced a special edition of the wave magazine, which tells you all you need to know to make your July transition go as easy as it can.
