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.


As a school we believe strongly in the importance of transition and therefore wanted to create a space on our website that is purely focused on this. We want to make sure you are informed about what is to come and you know where to go to find out information to the many questions you probably have. If we can run transition in person, this will be our preference and will happen if the circumstances allow.
In the mean time we want to reassure you that conversations between our transition team and primary teachers has already begun. During these conversation we receive invaluable information about your child, where they are up to in their learning and how we can support them in their move to secondary school. We use information from your child’s teacher to inform the form placement and who they are placed with.
Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce is our transition text and we have purchased a copy for all our new students which will be delivered to you with the information you need to complete and return back to school. To support the reading of the text we have a number of school made videos on our website that will support your child’s Cosmic journey through the text. These videos have been filmed by key members of the Chorlton High family and will include small subject related tasks that students can complete as part of reading the text. Please follow us @ChorltonHigh on twitter to receive updates from the school about the transition videos.

We will update this page with any further information regarding transition – watch this space.
