Year 6 Transition

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to parents of Year 6 students who will join Hanley Castle in September 2020.

We understand that this process is being made to seem more daunting due to the current situation. Please do not worry. We are all in this together and have plans in place to make the process as smooth as possible for you and the students.

July update:

You should have now received a second transition pack via the post. This details your son/daughter's new tutor group and their 'college' (our house system). Also included in this pack are details regarding uniform, staff profiles, student and parent checklists as well as activities which will give them a small taste of Hanley life. If you have not received this pack, please contact us on the school email address,

We look forward to your son/daughter joining us at Hanley very soon. In the mean time, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us via the school email address,
