Year 7 Transition

A warm welcome to Flint High School!

We are very much looking forward to your child joining us in Year 7 and we thank you very much for choosing our school.

The transition from primary to secondary school is a very important time for your child and we want to work with you to help make the move as smooth as possible.

This year the induction days are the 26th and 27th June. This is when your child will spend time at Flint High School having lessons, meeting teachers and of course other students. Each student will be in a form with a form tutor, who will look after their welfare and will be the first point of call regarding school matters. We will make arrangements for the canteen at that time to take thumbprints so that everything is ready for cashless catering in September. The Parents’ Information Evening will be Thursday 27th June at 6.00pm.

Our Assistant Head of Year, Mrs Crimes, has visited your child’s primary school and she will do so again in the coming weeks. The purpose of the visit will be to introduce herself to your child and speak to the class teacher so that we know as much about your child as possible beforehand.


On the Parents’ Information Evening, you will be given a booklet containing a list of uniform. This can be purchased from Monkhouse and the ‘New starter hub’ is now available on the Monkhouse website. Alternatively you can telephone on 0161 476 7216 or Email:

If your child has free school meals or is a looked after child you can access grant funding from Welsh Government to help with the cost of uniform. The 2024 to 2025 scheme will open on 1 July 2024. Please visit

Lunchtime arrangements

As your child has a universal free school meals entitlement at their primary school then this will continue here for the transition days. On the transition days there will be a hot meal deal, a cold food meal deal and a vegetarian option available. Students can also bring in a packed lunch if they choose to do so. For the transition days pupils should wear their own school uniform and bring with them basic equipment (pen/pencil/ruler, etc).

School day

Our school day starts at 8.40am, your child will be met in the school car park by a member of staff. The school day finishes at 3.10pm and students will be dismissed from reception at this time.


P & O Lloyd operate the coaches to Flint High School and the induction days’ transport will be provided by them (if you are not bringing your child or your child is walking to school). The bus stops and approximate times to be at the bus stop are listed below. Please aim to be at the bus stop earlier than the stated times. The bus will return from Flint High School to the bus stops after the end of the school day.
