beTransition to High School

At the end of Y6, pupils will transfer to either Chatsworth High School or Oakwood Academy which are both  located in Salford.   Pupils will attend the high school which is best suited to their learning needs and you will have the opportunity to have an initial discussion about this during your childs’ Y5 EHCP Review.

We know that the transition between Y6 and Y7 can be a difficult time for both pupils and their families, so in order to support with this, we will ensure that you have clear communication with regards to transition arrangements, what we are doing in school to support pupils to transition and also what you can do at home in regard to this.

We work closely with both Chatsworth and Oakwood each year to develop a transition package that will support pupils with the move.  All information is passed to the high schools so that they are fully aware of your childs’ needs and the best ways in which they can be supported.

Please find a guide below, which explains the transition to High School in more detail.


Some activities that may support your child with understanding the transition process can be found below.
