Welcome to Childwall Sports & Science Academy

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 Sports and Science Academy student.


Welcome Tour of Childwall Sports & Science Academy

We have put together a short video which gives you a taste of our fabulous facilities, classrooms and places to relax that we have in our school. You'll also meet some of the staff who will be there to greet Year 7 on their first day!

We would like to invite you to take a look at the video and join us on your very own 'Virtual Tour' of Childwall SSA!



We like to fully prepare for the arrival of our new Year 7 students each September and have created some useful resources for you and your child to look at and work through in preparation for joining Childwall SSA. Just click on the titles below and have a look!

  • Read our Transition Activity Booklet, packed full of ideas and activities to help you prepare for your first days at your new school.
  • Try the fun of activities in our COVID Learning Projects booklet
  • Read some really useful information in our Handy Guide for new Year 7s.
  • Take a look at the All About Mebooklet which will arrive in the post very soon for you to complete and bring with you on your first day in school. We can't wait to see it!

You can also read the OSSME Transition Back to School booklet which we posted on our website recently and you may find helpful in preparing to start a new school during these unusual times!

"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."
