Year 7 Admissions
The step from primary school to secondary school is often considered a difficult one to make. At Chase High, we strive to make this transition as smooth as possible, ensuring our new students feel welcome and included right from the start.
Supporting the start of their journey…
At the heart of Chase High is a commitment to supporting 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 get-go, we help new students 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 & Topaz) to immediately foster a community spirit and friendship groups
- Your child will be introduced to their Form Tutor and Year Leader, who will be with them through their whole time at school as their go-to sources for information and support
- Prefects from our higher year groups will be available to answer any questions and help show your child around the school

From engaging activities across our curriculum held by our dedicated teaching staff, to performances and demonstrations from our current students, get a complete introduction to the opportunities available to your children.
If you are unsuccessful in securing a place, you have the right to appeal the decision.
After downloading the Appeal Form (available below), you must fill in all areas and submit it in writing to us by 30th March. We will be responsible for organising an independent appeal.
