Year 7 parents and carers were invited to complete a survey about their child’s transition from primary school to Weatherhead High School. The survey was conducted at the autumn term Form Tutor’s evening and we received 110 responses – thank you.

We want to thank those participants for taking the time to complete the survey and to share the results with the Weatherhead School Community.
