Moving On

Moving on to another school is a daunting experience for both children and parents/carers. Staff make every effort to ensure that this process is as smooth as possible to ensure the best start to their secondary education.

Over Hall works closely with all secondary schools including our local secondary school provider, Winsford Academy

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure a secondary school place is applied for via the Local Authority Admissions Team. We strongly urge parents/carers to visit the school before applying, to ensure that you have a clear picture of what they offer and how they can support your child.  

Upon offer and subseqence acceptance of a place, staff at Over Hall work tirelessly to ensure all the appropriate information and details are shared with the correct professional at the chosen school. There are a number of activities planned over the course of Year 6 to support children with the transition process.

If you require further support or information please feel free to contact school or likewise follow the link to the Cheshire West and Chester Admissions Information.
