We understand that moving up to high school can be daunting for both children and parents alike. We have prepared a wealth of information that you can access at your own convenience on our website. We appreciate that many students have not benefitted from our full transition programme this year due to ongoing issues relating to the covid-19 pandemic, we are endeavouring to breach these gaps with parents and students through a variety of means including:

  • Mental Health Coffee Morning - for New Year 7 Parents (28/6/22 2-3pm).
  • Primary Transition lessons - delivered in Primary schools by Mrs Thompson (covering Mental Health and Wellbeing support).
  • Writing Project - delivered by Mr Spooner at Todmorden High School (all primary schools- more details below).
  • Transition Evening 7/7/22 - at Todmorden High School. 
  • Transition Day 8/7/22 - at Todmorden High School (except Castle Hill Primary - 15/7/22).
  • Y5 mornings 29/6/22 and 30/6/22 - an opportunity for Y5 students to come and have a taster session of High School life.
  • Extended Transition -  for invited students

We are committed to developing positive relationships with parents and carers so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, Mrs Thompson can support you with any queries p.thompson@todhigh.co.uk.

Details of Transition events will be released to parents shortly, including a parent guide, forms to fill in, key dates, whole school agreement and much more.
