NEW STARTERS (Year 7 – September 2023)
A big FHS welcome to all our new Year 7 students joining us in September 2023!
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.
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 forward to meeting everyone over the coming weeks.

As part of our transition programme, students who currently play a musical instrument (or sing) at primary school will be invited to a special Music Transition Day at FHS – watch this space for more information!
Transition Garden Party (July 2023)
Each year in July, we invite our new Year 7 students (for the coming September) and their parents to attend a Garden Party at FHS – a lovely summer evening to get to know other parents and key members of staff at the school. You will receive more information about this event in the summer term.
The school has two approved uniform suppliers, Whittakers Schoolwear (Southport) and Monkhouse.Schoolwear Specialists (Crosby) who both provide in-store and online uniform sales. Full details of uniform requirements can be found on our School Uniform page of the Key Information section of this website.
The school has two local suppliers of our branded items (see below) with all non-branded items purchased from a retailer of your own choice.

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 protected] email to the email address you used to submit your admission preferences to Sefton.
During your child’s first week 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!
We encourage you to keep in regular touch with us via Formby High School’s various communication channels over the coming weeks and months as we will use these to provide frequent updates and announce creative approaches to continuing provision and community engagement throughout the current closure period:
- FHS on Twitter – our Twitter account (@FormbyHigh) is a vibrant source of news and updates from across the life and work of the school. Many of our subject areas also have Twitter accounts which you can link to via the school’s main account.
- FHS on YouTube – we have recently added several fantastic, creative videos to our channel, which are well worth a quiet moment to watch!
- Email – don’t forget, if you have any questions or concerns you would like to raise with us, please don’t hesitate to email [email protected].
A Virtual ‘behind the scenes’ tour video – this was developed in 2021 when the last Year 6 group were unable to attend the school for induction days due to lockdown restrictions. This will give you and your child a sneak peak around before their visit in the summer…
