Welcome to Hazel Wood High School
It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to Hazel Wood High School in September and we are extremely delighted that you will be joining our school community as your child enters the next stage of their school life. We will do our very best to ensure that they have an amazing time that is filled with wonderful memories and success.
Starting secondary school is a really exciting time but we know that it can also feel a little bit daunting too. We also understand that they may be feeling a little anxious but please do not worry – we are here to fully support their transition and we will add all the information you need to this section of the website to ensure that their journey is a happy and safe one.
We know that you will have lots of questions and we will be working closely with your child’s primary school to address any issues or concerns that you might have. We have a number of links and resources that will be added which will help prepare them so please keep visiting the website for any updates.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our Hazel Wood High School family,
Mrs Davison – Head of Year 7
Meet our Transition Ambassadors
Do you think you might struggle to find our way around school?
Are you worried about not making friends?
If you have any concerns or worries about starting at Hazel Wood High in September, do not fear as we have our Transition Ambassadors on hand to help with any questions you may have!
At Hazel Wood High, we have a team of current Year 7 pupils, who will work closely with the Year 7 team to ensure that you have smooth, happy and safe transition from Primary to Secondary. They are here to highlight any issues or problems that might arise and will help to develop solutions to help you. They meet once every half term to discuss how they can improve your Year 7 experience and support the new pupils to our school.
We will add their photos onto this page to help you recognise them - watch this space!
Will there be any extra curricular activities for my child?
We are passionate about offering our pupils extra curricular activities at Hazel Wood High School. Due to current guidance we have needed to streamline what is on offer to enable pupils to remain within their year bubbles. We will, of course, review this as soon as we can and hope to bring even more choice to our pupils as the year develops.
Please see the current offer on our page.
You will need to complete and return a consent slip for your child to attend but we will provide these when your child starts school as well as an updated offer of our extra-curricular clubs.
