Congratulations on becoming a Manor High family. We are keen to welcome you to Manor High and we know that you will be eager to find out information about the school and how we manage your child’s transition from Primary to Secondary school.
As well as sending our online Welcome Presentation, we will be having a 'Getting to know you' evening in May and our Induction Days in July (the format of these will depend on the national guidelines). Further details will be sent nearer the time.
July 2021 Update
Due to the local situation and rising cases, we have postponed our transition days to the beginning of the new term. Year 7's first day will be Wednesday 25th July. They will be directed by staff where to go on arrival at 8.30am. For the first two days, they will be the only year group in school, allowing them time to really get acquainted to our site, our staff and their new friends.
The current government guidance may change before term starts. For this reason, we will email all new families nearer to the start of term to finalise details of our return.
We ask all our new parents to complete two forms:
Below is additional information that will help the transition process for our new students:
- New student FAQs
- School map
- A virtual tour of the school
- An introduction to our Study Centre
- Term dates
We also have a number of videos that our new students can watch to help them get acquainted with the school and our staff:
- A tour of the school with our Headteacher, Mr Powell
- Introducing our House Managers, subject departments and staff
If you have any questions about transition or anything to do with joining the school, please feel free to email Miss Dawes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As you will appreciate, in an ever-changing situation, we do not yet have confirmed plans for our return in the autumn. We will keep parents informed and communicate our plans for opening, along with details of any additional transition activities, towards the end of the summer holidays.
Take care and stay safe until we can welcome you to Manor High in the autumn.
