For Students Joining Us in Year 7 Autumn 2022

 

Congratulations!  

We are delighted that you are joining Rugby High School for the next stage in your education. We look forward to helping you develop as a creative and ambitious thinker who is able to face challenges with enthusiasm and empathy. Our aim is that you will leave RHS as a resilient, heathy and successful learner who is prepared and excited for the future, whatever it may bring 

We appreciate the importance of a good transition to secondary school and we want to reassure and support you through this.  Events of the last few years have prevented us from delivering our usual transition programme, which was very disappointing for everyone.  This year we plan to meet with you at your primary school to talk about life at RHS and then, on Wednesday 6th July, we hope to welcome you into school for Induction Day.  

Over the coming months we will be adding more information and resources to this page to help you feel part of the Rugby High School community and to address some common fears and concerns about the move to secondary school.  To get you started please explore the links below. 

In the next few weeks, you will receive an information pack from RHS and we would be grateful if your parents could complete and return any forms promptly. 

Best wishes
