September 2020 Transition

We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students in to school on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.

The current Coronavirus restrictions have unfortunately meant that we have been unable to invite you in to school for our normal Transition events. However, we have been lucky enough to spend time with the majority of you in previous years in our many primary school activities, so most of you will already be familiar with the school and many of the teaching and support teams. We have put together a short School Tour video to remind you of the main areas of our Box Lane site. Click here to watch this.

Along with your Form Tutor, our 2020-21 Year 7 Student Guidance team will be responsible for your care, welfare and academic progress throughout your time at CHS:

Miss C Blundred


Year 7 Guidance
Team Leader    

I am looking forward to welcoming you all to Congleton High School. I hope you will all be very happy here with us and I will do my best to help and support you throughout your time at our school. 
Having taught Music at CHS for 20 years, I have a pretty good idea of how fantastic the school is. I hope that you are excited about joining us and making the most of the wonderful opportunities that will be available to you. I know things may be a little strange to begin with and there will be lots of challenges that you will have to face but, having been a Head of Year for many years, I hope you will come to me with any problems or concerns. 
I hope you have a lovely summer and I will see you in September.

My name is Mrs Darling and I am also new to Congleton High School. I will be joining as Deputy Headteacher in September and I am really looking forward to welcoming you to the school. I know you will have lots of things you may be worried about as you leave your primary school, but you will be very well looked after by all of the other students and staff at Congleton.
Starting Year 7 is a really exciting time for you and there are lots of new friends and memories to make. I hope that you enjoy your summer and I really look forward to meeting you all soon.
