Welcome to Glossopdale

Thank you for choosing Glossopdale!

We are really looking forward to meeting you in the coming months as you begin your transition from Primary to Secondary school.

Every year, our new students tell us how happy they are about the way we supported them in this important move – we intend for you to feel comfortable, well-informed and ready to start in Year 7.

These are the first steps in your seven year journey to success as a young adult.  Our dedicated team of staff and students will begin visiting you and your Year 6 teachers in the next few weeks.  There will also be a series of exciting after school clubs running at Glossopdale – where you can meet our teachers and other students, get to know the layout of our building and have fun joining in! 

For two days on 6th and 7th July you will have a full induction – attending lessons, meeting all the other students in your tutor group and having an all-round experience of what it will be like to be a new Glossopdale student.  You will see our high standards of learning and behaviour, and understand our expectations too.

On 25th May 2017 your parents are invited to our first meeting about transition at the Hadfield site.  Here we will give lots more important information – we look forward to seeing them there.  On 13th July you and your parents are invited to our “Meet the Tutor” evening where you will get to know your tutor group teacher and ask any questions you may have.

Of course, there are exciting times ahead in many ways for you as a member of Glossopdale.  Our new school building is currently under construction and is due to open in Spring 2018.

Should you wish to visit us at any point before any of the programme above, we would be only too happy to welcome you (and your parents) for a visit.  Please contact us to arrange an appointment.

Looking forward to working with you all.
