New Year 7 Students – Welcome Events & Summer School

Dear Parent/Carer,

We hope you are well and we are very much looking forward to the Induction Events taking place on Wednesday 3rd July 2024 and over the summer holidays; this letter outlines information about the events and the key dates/times they take place. 

Welcome Day for Students – Wednesday 3rd July 2024

  • Students are to be dropped off at Main Reception between 8.25 and 8.35 where they will then be directed towards the J Block gates and guided towards their line up lines. 
  • Students will receive their Form and House allocation before the Welcome Day and will meet their new peers in their Forms . 
  • Students will then take part in activities including team building exercises as well as a range of subjects they will be studying from September. 
  • Students will have a break time from 10.30 – 10.45am and lunch from 12-1pm where students should bring their own packed lunch. 
  • The Induction Day will end at 2.45pm, 20 minutes before the rest of the school finishes for the day so our new students have plenty of time to leave the site and be collected. 

Welcome Evening for Parents – Wednesday 3rd July 2024 at 5.30pm – 6.30pm

Parents/Carers are warmly invited to our Welcome Evening at South Wirral for further information on our school community in a presentation by the Headteacher and to meet your child/ward’s Head of Year and Assistant Head of Year. We will provide you with information on how school life will be for your child/ward and answer any questions you may have ahead of the Summer Holidays. There will also be a uniform shop available at the Induction Evening for you to purchase school ties and badges ahead of the summer – please see in the next section of this letter a price list.

Summer School – Monday 19th August – Wednesday 21st August 2022

We are delighted to be holding a 3 day Summer School Transition Week in August. All students are invited to attend on all three days. Each day school will open at 8.45am ready for a 9.00am start. Each day will finish at 2.15pm. Each day there will be a carousel of team building, fun activities. 

On this day students should enter through the main gates and report to Reception where a member of the team will be there to greet them. They should wear their own clothes and footwear suitable for PE sessions. A bag with some writing equipment, a water bottle, some sunscreen and a hat would be useful. Students will need to bring a packed lunch for each day, breakfast snacks will be provided each day on arrival. Please advise us of any dietary requirements/allergies using the return below.

At the end of each day there will be a uniform and equipment stand in the Student Entrance selling ties (£5.50) blazer badges (£3.50) scientific calculators (£7.50) and other stationery. 

Please complete the Google Form here to indicate whether your child will attend the summer transition week – the deadline for this is Friday 21st June 2024 so we can ensure all provisions and plans are in place to support all students attending. If you have noted any SEND/Medical requirements, a member of staff from the SEND team will be in touch to discuss any arrangements required.

Tuesday 3rd September 2022

Students’ first day at South Wirral High School is Tuesday 3rd September 2024, and students should arrive at the Main Reception between 8.30am – 8.45am for their induction in full school uniform. Year 7 will be the only students in school on this day and will be able to navigate the school building with their new peers, following their timetables and meeting all their new teachers. 

In September, we will also be accepting payment for school lockers; lockers are £20 for 5 years which includes a £5 deposit to be returned at the end of the hire period. We can accept both cash and cards. 

We look forward to meeting you and if you have any questions, please contact us at

Yours sincerely,

Mrs S Hodson-Evans
