Moving from Primary to Secondary school can be an anxious time for parents as well as for children.  At The Henry Cort Community College we recognise that and we work hard to ensure the transition process is as smooth as possible.

We encourage you to visit our college, speak to teachers, hear from parents about our enterprising spirit and meet some of our wonderful students.  In doing so, you can see for yourself what an excellent place The Henry Cort Community College is to study.‚Äč

We have a wonderful team of dedicated staff, who are committed to providing students with exciting learning opportunities that equip all students for the next stages in their lives. 

As part of our transition programme in recent years we have run Saturday Workshops for both Year 5 and Year 6 pupils in April/May.  These workshops give the children an opportunity to spend some time at Henry Cort, meet some of the teachers and experience a range of lessons.

The Wednesday afternoon sessions are used well to support pupils' personal development learning. It actively promotes traditional British values and endorses the virtues of truth, justices, honesty and a sense of moral duty.

The curriculum is very well designed to prepare them academically, socially and personally. Pupils spoke positively about the school and expressed their gratitude for the support offered by their teachers.
