Transition to Year 7

Following the announcement from the Welsh Government earlier this week regarding school plans for September, you will receive a letter with further information from Mr. Cripps early next week.

Our transition programme ensures new pupils feel happy, settled and secure from their very first day at Pontypridd High School. 


It is very important to us that we get to know pupils throughout year 5 and year 6.  We invest time in our transition programme so pupils can experience high school with plenty of time to prepare.  We spend time getting to know pupils as well as collecting all the relevant information from their primary schools so that we can ensure the best support is in place for them.


As a result of the circumstances this year, we have continued to meet with the primary schools in a virtual setting.  This has allowed us to ensure we can be as prepared as possible for September.  As well as that we have released lots of information so pupils and parents have everything they need to know about life at PHS.


At Pontypridd High School we value all pupils and make great efforts to ensure they feel valued and supported during this crucial period of transition.
