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.
We would usually come to visit your child at their primary school first, then invite them to our induction day at Broughton, before meeting parents for the information evening afterwards. As you can appreciate, we will have to think and work differently this year due to the current pandemic, but rest assured, we will provide you and your child with everything required to make the transition to Broughton a successful one.
The booklets attached to the right have already been sent out to parents. They contain key information about Broughton and will help your son/daughter prepare for their first day with us. Please do take some time to read over them. We have also provided a 'virtual tour' of the school, which we hope will give your child a taste of what is to come and help answer any questions they will inevitably have. It is led by four of our current Year 7 pupils, who no doubt best placed to share their experiences having been in the same position just last year!
Keep checking back in on this page for further updates, as we continue to look for ways to share information with you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
