First Day of School Information

Success from Day One

The move to secondary school means many changes for children so we make every effort to know and understand the needs of individuals to try to ensure a seamless transition. FHS is unique in offering a specialist Transition Team to help students make a positive transfer from primary school. Our Achievement Coordinator, Mr Donavan Shand, meets children in Year 6 and stays with them throughout Year 7.

Our work with future students continues all year. We run outreach activities with Year 4 & 5 children, and our renowned Magic Mornings give Year 5 & 6 students the opportunity to experience FHS for a day. Every child coming into our school is recognised as an individual. We want them to leave Year 7 as happy, successful and engaged young people – ready for the rest of their school careers.

Summer School Medical Form

We are excited to offer a one-week Summer School enrichment programme delivered in collaboration with Bristol-based social enterprise Unique Voice. The week is packed with student-centred workshops, games and activities designed to support your child:

  • Familiarising them with Fairfield High School ethos and values, building and staff
  • Introducing and explaining secondary school academic and behavioural expectations
  • Social and emotional development and well-being, including dealing with change, building confidence and self-esteem, envisioning aspirations & ambitions.
  • E-safety and responsible and appropriate use of social media
  • And, of course, making new friends and having loads of fun!

You may opt for your child to attend either during WC 26th July 2021 or WC 2nd August 2021. Places will be split equally between both weeks, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. There are enough spaces for all students starting FHS in September 2021, to attend.

Magic Mornings

We warmly welcome primary school students to join us for a Magic Morning between 9-11am. The aim of Magic Mornings are to give young people a secondary school experience – there is by no means any guarantee that those attending will be enrolled at FHS.

Dates for 2021-22 Magic Mornings are as follows (spaces can be booked from the start of the academic year in September – please include in your booking requests the following information: parent/carer name, child’s name, primary school, current year, contact number and any SEN/medical information):
