The step from primary school to secondary school is often considered a difficult one to make. At Chase High School, we strive to make this transition as smooth as possible, ensuring that our new students feel welcome and included from the start.
Supporting the start of their journey…
At the heart of Chase High School is a commitment to support our students’ personal development by providing complete pastoral support from the moment they arrive.
By giving them this individual level of care and attention from the start, we help new students to feel settled, comfortable and encouraged, allowing them to quickly navigate this transition phase and take advantage of the opportunities available to them.
- Each student is assigned to one of four houses – Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Topaz – to immediately foster a community spirit and to enable friendship groups to be formed.
- Your child will be introduced to their Form Tutor and Year Leader, who will be with them throughout their time at Chase High School as their go-to sources of information and support.
- Prefects from higher Year Groups will be available to answer any questions, and help show your child around the school.

These ‘whole day’ experiences bring Year 5 students, accompanied by their current teachers, from our valued feeder primary schools to engage with our school across a series of exciting challenges.
Year 6 Taster Days
In the Summer prior to joining us, Year 6 students have the opportunity to meet Chase High School staff and students, tour the school and participate in secondary school learning experiences, which help us to identify any specific needs and aspirations before the students’ official arrival in September.
