Year 6 Transition



Embarking on an Exciting Educational Adventure at Aldersley High School!

Hello, dear parents and guardians!

What an exciting time this is! We’re on the cusp of a new chapter, potentially starting a wonderful journey together into the enriching educational landscape at Aldersley High School. If you are given a place we will be sending you an invite to our Afternoon Tea on Thursday 21st March.

Why choose Aldersley? Because we’re more than a school – we’re a vibrant, nurturing community. Every lesson here is a mix of knowledge, creativity, personal growth, and yes, laughter and joy. We’re big believers in the power of curiosity, the importance of inspiring each student, and the value of crafting an environment where kids don’t just learn but genuinely thrive.

Should you decide to entrust your child’s education to us, here’s a little heads-up: right around the first week of March, keep an eye on your mailbox! We’ll be sending out a package brimming with all sorts of helpful information to smooth out the transition process. It’s packed with insights on what life at Aldersley is all about and how your child can start preparing for their exciting first day with us.

Here’s hoping Aldersley High School is your top choice, and we get the opportunity to welcome your family into ours. With a world of new experiences awaiting, we’re positively giddy at the thought of starting this journey with you this coming September. Fingers crossed, and we hope to be reaching out to you in March with great news and helpful pointers!

Warmest regards,

Mrs Barnshaw, Transition Lead
