Starting Secondary School - The Transition

We take great pride in our induction of new students in the knowledge that a settled and happy student will flourish academically and socially. We work closely with our feeder primary schools to exchange academic and pastoral information on the students which is used strategically to plan the curriculum and pastoral support. Students looking at enrolling at Lytham St Annes High School are given the opportunity to look around our school and find out all about the exciting subjects we offer at our Annual Open Evening in September or October.

Furthermore, all students take part in an exciting induction day, with many visiting our school for additional sporting, arts, and other events. We understand fully that the move from primary school to secondary school can seem like a massive jump. However, please be assured that as a school we are committed to ensuring that this move is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

However, if you have any questions or concerns then please feel free to contact us. Please be aware that there is no such thing as a silly question, so if anything is worrying you, please email us to put your mind at ease. 

Open Evening 2020

Around September/October time we would usually have an open evening, where you would have a tour of the school, listen to Mr Baker speak and generally get a chance to ask questions. However, due to Covid-19, our risk assessments and commitment to the safety of current staff and students make this difficult. Instead, we have put together some presentations, videos and documents so you can make your choice with as much information as possible. Thank you for bearing with us at this difficult time, but we want to get it right.
