Broughton Hall Catholic High School - Transition


Welcome to the class of 2023

Here at Broughton Hall Catholic High School we are delighted to welcome you to our school community and look forward to building strong, positive relationships with pupils and parents. Strong home school relationships are vital to the success of every pupil at Broughton Hall and were identified by OFSTED in our recent inspection as a strength of our school when they commented that 'Pupils, and students in the sixth form, are proud to be part of Broughton Hall Catholic High School. Pupils enjoy strong relationships with their teachers and pastoral staff'. By working together, we enable our pupils to achieve their potential.

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, Broughton Hall Catholic High School is committed to the teaching of Gospel values and respect for one another, which permeate the life of the school. We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so that they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.

We are excited to meet you and delighted that you chose Broughton Hall for the next stage of your academic journey. There will be a parent meeting on Thursday 30th March where you will meet our leadership team and find out more about our school and our expectations.


Transition from primary to secondary school is a big step in the lives of our young people and we want to reassure you that we are here to support and guide you throughout the process. There will be a number of transition events to help smooth that process starting with our parent meeting on Thursday 30th March at 6pm. There will then be a number of opportunities for your daughter to join us in preparation for her start in September 2023 including the citywide induction day.

Reading presentation from welcome evening

We use the NGRT test to identify where intervention in reading may be needed, and then we monitor impact and progress made. The intervention programme we use is Ruth Miskin's Fresh Start Read, Write Inc programme which is a phonic based approach which encourages rapid progress in reading ability. For more details and to watch a more informative presentation please see link below.
