Winterhill Transitions Student Form 2020

Dear Parent/Carer 

I am extremely pleased to confirm that your child has been allocated a place at Winterhill School, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them as a Year 7 student.

As you know, your child will be joining a high achieving comprehensive school, where we put great emphasis on personal development as well as academic achievement. Alongside this, we expect everyone to uphold our Winterhill ethos of showing respect, responsibility and resilience. It is these values which uphold all aspects of school life, underpinned by our guiding principle that, ‘other people matter’.

Of course, during such challenging and uncertain times, there will be some increased anxiety around the important transition to Winterhill School. However, I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the staff at Winterhill School have been working extremely hard in ensuring that this transition will be as smooth as possible, by working with your child’s current school throughout this academic year. Of course, when we are able to return to school, we will be in contact with details of events where you can meet myself, your child’s group tutor and other key staff who will all be supporting your child’s education at Winterhill.

In order to prepare for your child’s arrival at Winterhill, we are continuing to put in place the support networks they may need, as well as organising important information to ensure your child can continue to build on the excellent progress they have made during their primary years. In order to do this, can I ask that you complete the attached information form and return it to Winterhill at your earliest convenience by post, or preferably email using transitions@winterhill.org.uk

I look forward to meeting you all in the near future and working with yourselves throughout your child’s time at Winterhill. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe.

Yours sincerely

Mr S Rhodes

Headteacher
