Moving up to high school

Advice for prospective parents and students

We understand that moving up to high school can be daunting for both children and parents alike.  As such, we like to do everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible and ensure that children are given plenty of opportunities to visit the school on taster days and at fun events to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings.

We believe that one of the best ways to find out more about our school is to come and visit us.  We welcome parents to turn up during the school day, report to the main reception desk and a member of staff will show you around our school.  This will give you the perfect opportunity to see the school and our students on a normal day and it will give you a great insight into what the Todmorden High School family is all about. You can show up at any time, unannounced, we would be glad to welcome you.
