Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

Welcome to our new Year 7 pupils

We are delighted that your child will be joining Broughton High School in September.

Transition from primary to secondary school can be an exciting time for many children. The opportunity to experience new subjects, new activities and make new friends. We understand that whilst most pupils feel this way, some may experience nervousness at the thought of starting secondary school. We will strive to ensure all pupils feel supported in their transition process and that it goes as smoothly as possible.

Keep checking back in on this page for further updates.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
