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 Video

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! Click on the image below:


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 Student Transition Booklet, which is packed full of ideas and activities to help you prepare for your first days at your new school.
  • Read some really useful information in our Parent Information Handbook for our new Year 7 parents and carers.
  • Take a look at the All About Me booklet 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!

Quotes from some of last year's Year 7 students:

"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."
