Transition Information


Welcome to the Year 6 transition page. This page provides parents and new students with further information about the transition process of becoming a Childwall and Science Academy student. 

Below are a selection of quotes from some of our 2016 intake of Year 7 students who told visitors at our recent Open Evening what they thought of our school. They had only been at Childwall for a few weeks but clearly they had enjoyed an overwhelmingly positive experience in our safe and happy school.

"When I first came to Childwall I was nervous, scared and worried because I did not know what to expect. After only three weeks I can honesty say that all my fears have been put to rest."

"The teachers and members of staff are lovely. Everyone is kind, helpful, friendly and makes you feel really at home."

"Coming here just seems to give me the feeling that there is something to look forward to everyday."

"At first I thought I would never make any friends, but Childwall has boosted my confidence."

"The reason you should join our Childwall family is because we have such a happy, educational, fun and safe environment."
