We believe strongly in supporting each individual in their transition to Year 7. This is achieved through visits to primary schools and importantly, and differently from many other schools, there is an opportunity for each child and their parents to come and meet with one of the senior members of staff here, before your child starts. At this meeting you can discuss your child’s academic ability and also their interests and talents and give us any information you think it is important for us to know. This helps our children settle in well and for staff to get to know them quickly. We are working closely with our partner primaries to ensure that our teaching and learning builds upon what our students have already mastered. Our pastoral team and tutors look after each child’s academic progress and well-being, we want everyone to work hard, enjoy what they do and be happy in all aspects of school life.
We know that working with parents is a vital part of this. We take care to develop these partnerships from the outset. Early in the autumn term we have an evening focussed on teaching, learning and what your child will study. Soon after that we have a ‘meet the tutor’ evening for you to hear how your child has settled in and then followed by a parents’ evening for you to meet your child’s teachers and receive a more detailed academic update.

Ashton and Summer give their thoughts about Christ the King
School is really fun, I really enjoy Maths and Sport lessons but they are all challenging and a lot of fun. All of my teachers are very supportive and friendly. I have found all the other pupils and teachers in the school have helped me to find my way around the school.
I really like my lessons, I’ve learned a lot since coming to the school already. I’m being challenged in lessons and all my lessons are fun. My form teacher is really nice, kind and supportive – she pays attention to all of us.
School Packed Lunches
Just a reminder to prospective parents that we are a “nut free” school because we have children who are allergic to nuts, which is a life threatening condition. We do not use nuts in any of our food prepared on site at school.
Please can you help us to protect these children by being vigilant when providing your child with packed lunch and when bringing any foods such as snacks and birthday cakes.
Our “Nut-Free Policy” means that the following items should not be brought into school:
Packs of nuts
Peanut butter sandwiches
Fruit and cereal bars that contain nuts
Chocolate products that contain nuts
Sesame seed rolls (children allergic to nuts may also have a severe reaction to sesame)
Cakes made with nuts
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
