Years 5 & 6
Thinking about choosing us in September 2023?
From Our Headteacher and Head of Year 7
Norham High School is a brilliant choice of secondary school!
We know that the change from primary school to high school can feel like a really big step; this is why we invest a lot of time in planning a very carefully considered transition programme for year six pupils so your child can settle in with us before they start.
The transition week and is always a huge success; pupils and parents/carers tell us how much of a difference it makes to them.
We have anticipated the natural worries and trepidations you may have when your child starts High School for the first time; this is why our transition programme focuses on building friendships, experiencing new things in our local area, navigating our school building and routines, meeting school staff and developing the skills that will equip your child for a successful life at Norham High School.
The aim of our programme is to ensure your child is fully supported to make a seamless transfer from primary to secondary school, getting to know them personally, both in terms of their interests and individual needs. Our transition programme will also be a rigorous and ambitious learning experience, where your child will be challenged and supported to think hard! all values that are at the heart of the Norham High School experience.
Parents/carers will also be invited to our celebration assembly on the Friday of transition week to recognise their child’s achievements and successes during the week. There will also be opportunities to meet your child’s form tutor and to ensure all of your questions are answered; we very much look forward to meeting you too!
