New Starters Year 7

FHS2016  - 391FHS2016  - 126FHS2016  - 958

A big FHS welcome to all our new Year 7 students joining us in September 2020!

We are delighted you have chosen Formby High School for your secondary education and we look forward to working with all parents and students to ensure the next five to seven years are enjoyable, challenging and highly rewarding.

We understand that this year’s transition programme will, inevitably, look very different this year for obvious reasons. However, we are committed to provide the support, guidance and welcome FHS is known for.  Despite the challenges of lockdown, our transition teams are working hard remotely to keep this process going.

Transition Team

Our Transition Team, led by Mr Cook (Senior Assistant Headteacher) and Mrs Edey (Climate for Learning Leader Year 7), oversees the smooth transition of students from primary to secondary school on an annual basis.  Your child’s Form Tutor will be with them for the next five years of school and will be key point of contact for you.

Transition Programme

Over recent weeks, our Transition Team has been working with your child’s primary school to ensure we have all the information we need to help him/her enjoy his/her transition to secondary school in September and make the experience as smooth and effective as possible.

Throughout the transition process, we communicate with our new parents by email via the address you used to submit your preference to Sefton in October.  We are confident that you will enjoy this transition process and that your child will be fully supported during this important milestone for them.  Becoming part of the FHS family will be an experience they won’t forget and we are very much looking forwad to meeting everyone over the coming weeks.

Key Transition Events

We will provide an update on key transition events as soon as government guidance enables us to do so.

Summer School 2020

It is our sincere hope that Summer School will be able to take place as restrictions ease and we will continue to plan and take bookings for this event.  Should any government guidance suggest that this cannot take place, we will, of course, keep you fully updated.  Bookings can be made by following this link:









School Uniform

The school has two approved uniform suppliers, Whittakers Schoolwear (Southport) and Monkhouse.Schoolwear Specialists (Crosby).  Full details of uniform requirements can be found on our Uniform page of the Key Information section of this website.


Please remember that email is the primary method of communication with parents at FHS.  Up until September, we will communicate with you from our email.  However, on your child’s first day in September, you will receive an invitation email from ParentMail, our chosen home/school communication platform, with your unique registration link.  Please ensure you register as soon as possible to avoid missing important communications from the school.  For both environmental and financial reasons, the school has chosen to be as paper free as possible and we appreciate your full support!
