Registration for all new Year 12 students is on Tuesday 1st September at 1:30 in the main hall. For all 6th Form enrolment enquiries please email Mr Duffell, director of 6th form: firstname.lastname@example.org
During the Year 6 transition days, the Years 6 pupils came into school and spent one day with their new form tutors and one day experiencing taster lessons. They also enjoyed using their Smartcards to buy lunch in the dining hall!
As an EBuddy, we helped the students by showing them around the school and taking small groups to put money on their Smartcards. We also helped by telling the Year 6 pupils where to go when they weren’t sure. Additionally, the EBuddies helped the form tutors by handing things out and helped to teach the Year 6 pupils who struggled with the transition. We reassured them that there is nothing to worry about.
Hopefully, the Year 6 pupils found the transition days helpful and enjoyed them. We look forward to seeing them in September.

“I enjoyed using a Smartcard at lunch and break and meeting new people.”
“I am not very worried about getting lost, because I have been around the school.”

Thank you to the Year 7 EBuddies for their involvement with Year 6 Transition!
The role of the Year 7 EBuddy is one that not only supports but also enhances the induction opportunities for Year 6. Throughout the year the Year 7 EBuddies have been actively involved in various events and visits. The feedback from Primary Schools, Year 6 students and their parents has been overwhelmingly positive.
One parent has stated, ‘Your Year 7 EBuddies have been excellent role models and represented Helsby High School in an excellent light, as a result my child can’t wait to join in September.’
Thank you to all Year 7 EBuddies for being excellent ambassadors for Year 7 and fulfilling their role in a mature, responsible and efficient manner.
We are all very proud of you!
Ms Simmonds & Mrs Turner

Competing at the 85th English Schools’ Track and Field Championships at Gateshead last weekend, representing Cheshire in the Junior Boys 800m event, Jacob qualified from his heat, and finished in 6th place in the final.
It is an outstanding achievement to even be selected for this event, and to attain 6th place in the whole of England, especially in a highly competitive event like 800m, is truly commendable.
