Transitions 2023

Congratulations on your place at Ellesmere Port Catholic High School

We are looking forward to working with the Year 6 pupils who are going to join us in September. You should have already heard from the local authority through which you applied, who will have detailed any action you need to take with them.

You will have received an email welcoming you all to our school community. Within this email are the links to the on-line forms that are needed to be completed in full before the end of May.

If you believe your child has a place at Ellesmere Port Catholic High School for September 2023 and you have not yet received an email inviting you to complete your details, please contact the transitions team on transitions@epchs.co.uk

We are hopeful that we will be able to run our usual transition events including:

  • Building Bridges Day (Saturday 22nd April)
  • Transition Days (Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July)
  • New Parents’ Information Evening (Wednesday 12th July)
  • Summer school (7th – 11th August)

If your child has any concerns about starting school in September, this short video may help. In the meantime, Mrs V Marsland (our transition lead) and Mrs E Nelson (Year 7 Pastoral Leader), have contacted all primary schools to collect student information and assist with the smooth transition from primary into secondary education for your child.
