New Parent & Student FAQs
Transitioning to secondary school is a key milestone for a young person. We hope the following FAQs will assist you with your preparations prior to joining Worthing High.
My child is currently in Year 6 - What happens after I find out they have a place in Year 7 from September?
Our Admissions team will contact you immediately after you are advised that you have a place at Worthing High School. We will send out a questionnaire to find out more about your son/daughter to assist their transition to Worthing High.
Will there be a parent/care meeting in the summer term to provide us with more information?
Yes - all parents/carers will be invited to our Intake Evening - usually the 1st Wednesday in July starting at 6pm. You will meet our senior staff and also find out much more information regarding your child's time at Worthing High.
Will my son/daughter get the chance to visit the school in the summer term?
Yes - all students starting Worthing High will spend one day with us - usually 1st Wednesday in July. This is called INTAKE Day. They will come to Worthing High for the whole day - wearing their current school uniform. They will take part in lessons, assessments and a general induction to the school.
Students with additional needs may visit more often - on specially arranged sessions with their current school and our Inclusion Team.
How do I obtain school uniform?
Our website contains all the information you need - please see UNIFORM in the PARENT section.
In addition, we arrange a uniform fitting evening each summer term. All Y6 students joining us that September are invited. The event provides you with the opportunity to try on uniform "samples" prior to ordering on line.
What can I read to find out all about the school before my son/daughter starts?
Our INTAKE book will be posted to all new parents/carers around May half term each year. However, a copy of our current version can be found on this PAGE of our website.
What homework with my son/daughter get?
Our Homework Policy is available on our policy page - it is called Independent Learning Policy.
