Transition to Haydon Bridge High School

The transition from primary or middle school to Haydon Bridge is an exciting time. Our transition programme is continually reviewed in response to what students, parents and staff from all schools tell us. Our aim is to ensure that moving school is a pleasurable and easy process. For 2018-19 we have a range of activities planned which will ensure the students are fully prepared for the next stage in their school lives. Throughout the year we ensure that there are clear communication channels which enable us to be aware of the needs of students, their likes, dislikes and social groups. In addition to the transfer of information files, our staff visit each feeder school, discuss with key staff and share appropriate information to guarantee that each young person arrives at Haydon Bridge with all parties fully prepared. Transition activities include:

  • Sporting competitions
  • Art projects
  • Science (Stem) activities
  • Tours of the school
  • Taster Lessons

We always welcome any contact from prospective parent /carers , should you want to come and visit the school during school hours or after please contact the school – telephone 01434 684422 or email us at We look forward to working with you on the next stage in your son/daughters education.
