It is with great pleasure that we welcome your child on the start of their journey with us at Chorlton High School. We are delighted that you have entrusted us with their continued education and promise that we will do all that we possibly can to ensure that they have a successful and rewarding time with us.

The Local Authority has decided that all Secondary schools should conduct the Transition process virtually. Whilst this is not our preferred route, we understand the reasons and want to reassure you and your children that we have lots of exciting plans to offer students a transition experience that will ready them for their move to us in September. This part of the website will includes lots of useful information to help support your child with their transition to us in September. We will be in touch with you directly about the opportunities moving forward.
