Some quotes from our 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."

Close contact with our feeder schools starts in Year 5 with a variety of sporting events organised by our School's Sport Co-ordinator. 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
