Year 6 - 7 Transition (2016-7)
Our induction programme is designed to offer prospective parents and students an opportunity to learn about becoming a student at Cottingham High School and the educational opportunities we offer.
For the attention of year 6 parents
You and your child are invited to attend our Annual Open Events 28, 29 September 2016.
Our Open Evening is on 28 September at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start with an introduction from the Head teacher, a chance to meet key members of staff and a tour of the school with lots of fun interactive learning activities for your year 6 child. The evening will end at 8.30pm.
Our Open Morning will be held on 29 September starting at 9.15am for a 9.30am start. This event will follow a similar structure but as the school is in progress there will be less emphasis on interactive activities and more on observing a ‘working school’. The event will finish at 11am.
There will be a chance for you to talk about any queries or concerns you may have and we will also be handing out additional transition information.

Some quotes from our current Year 7:
"We chose Cottingham High School because it feels like a community - a feeling that was lacking when we visited our catchment school".
"I am so pleased with my daughter's start to Year 7. She has made a group of friends very quickly and she has been smiling! She told me the other day that she wished she had been able to see into the future because she wouldn’t have got so worried about the move to High School. It was a big step leaving Primary School friends behind so I am really pleased that she has settled in so quickly. Thank you ever so much for your support."
We have 7 feeder schools:
We also take students from a wide range of Hull primaries.
Close contact with our feeder schools starts in Year 5 with a variety of sporting events organised by our School's Sport Coordinator. For Year 6 we hold transition meetings with all Year 6 teaching staff from feeder and non-feeder schools, during May and June. Academic, pastoral and SEN information is gained about every pupil.
We also offer transition lessons in a range of subjects during the summer term.
The benefits of our comprehensive transition process are:
- Pupils arrive at Cottingham High School confident and secure
- Parents are fully aware and fully informed at all stages
- Pupils are allocated to a suitable form, based on pastoral and academic information from the primary school
- Learning is able to begin quickly in September as pupils have some prior experience of school
