Welcome to Rossett School.
Transition to secondary school is a time of great change and we have set up this page to give you updates on transition arrangements for this year as well as offering useful resources and exciting activities to help make the process run smoothly.
If your child has not yet completed their Student Profile, please ask them to do so at their earliest convenience. The information they provide is an important part of us learning more about them, before they begin in September. Please use the link here.

Induction days for your child: Wednesday 14 July and Thursday 15 July. These will be held at Rossett School to give your child an opportunity to explore the school, meet their form tutor and learn about what it means to be a Rossett student. They will also get their first taste of English, Maths and Science lessons at secondary school!
Parents'/Carers' information evening: Wednesday 14 July - 6pm
This evening will give parents and carers the essential information you need to ensure your child has a smooth start to Rossett School in September.
Family Learning Day: Saturday 17 July - TBC
During the morning, you will have the opportunity to experience our excellent teaching in a series of short lessons you can attend with your child.
Summer School: Tuesday 31 August to Friday 3 September
Our summer school is an exciting opportunity for your child to boost their literacy and numeracy, make new friends and enjoy fun sporting and creative activities. We will be sending out booking details in the coming weeks. Places will be limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Whilst we plan to hold these events in person, at Rossett School, the format of delivery may change in response to local or national restrictions related to coronavirus.
Sixth Form Listeners
An important part of our transition process is our Sixth Form Listener Team. The Listeners are a group of Year 12 students who have undertaken a full training programme, which has provided them with a variety of skills to support the transition of students into Year 7. The Listeners are assigned to a Year 7 Form Group and will be there as a ‘peer mentor’ for the students - supporting them throughout their time in Year 7. Students will have an opportunity to meet their ‘Listener’ during the transition days.
