Starting Caterham, September 2020

We are delighted that your child will be joining Caterham High in September 2020.

Your child’s transition from primary to secondary is a big step and we are on hand to help them through this journey.  It is vital to make sure that your child feels confident and equipped to make the transition into our school at the start of the academic year.

Our aims

  • To reassure Year 6 students about their transitions to Caterham High and to prepare them for secondary school life.
  • To support parents and carers and provide them with all the information they need throughout the transition process.
  • To gather all the relevant information about each student joining the school in September to enable them to have the best possible start.

Please Note

That due to the Government’s announcement to close schools until further notice, information about our planned transition events in the summer term are subject to change.  We will contact parents/carers directly once we have further information.

We would be delighted if you joined our Friends of Caterham Facebook Page


Message from your Head of Year

“I am really looking forward to welcoming you to Caterham High School and am excited for you all to start your learning journey in September. You must be very excited – and a little bit nervous. The transition from primary to secondary school is a challenge and we will support you every step of the way. I hope you are very excited about all the new people you will meet and things you will do. I am confident that this will be the start of very many happy and successful years with us. In addition to being a Year leader, I am a PE teacher and a Head of House. I will be using these roles to help to develop you as an individual, a team player and a key part of the school community. I am eager to meet you all and I hope that you all have a wonderful summer”.
