Transition

Year 6 Transition information!

Dear Parent / Carer,

Here at Cwmbran High School, we are busy preparing for your son / daughter to join us in September.  We are looking forward to meeting them and working with you to ensure your child has a positive learning experience with us. The start date for Year 7 is Tuesday 7th September at 8.30 am.

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Virtual Open Evening on Thursday 24th June. If you were unable to attend, I have enclosed a copy of the presentation and a link to the video which can be found on our school website under the TRANSITION section.

If you were unable to attend, I have attached a copy of the presentation (click here) and a link to the video below.

As you are aware, transition events in the current pandemic have unfortunately had to be delivered virtually, however, staff here in CHS and pupils have enjoyed a variety of activities since we returned from lock down.

Further information regarding the school and staff can be found on our:

Designated transition page on the school website with all information for parents and pupils including video tours of the school. Meet the staff videos and CHS chronicles.

Designated Twitter Page to share important information with parents of pupils in Year 6

  • Transition activities to complete from all subjects in CHS

We look forward to meeting your children on Tuesday 7th September at 8.30 am. Please drop off your son/ daughter at the drop off point and our staff will be on hand to meet them and guide them to their new form classes.
