Transition from primary school to secondary school

One of the unique advantages we can offer here at Werneth is that we have a dedicated team working to offer successful transition from Year 6 in to Year 7.

Any questions Year 5 or 6 have about Werneth School, can simply email our Transition Mentor Mrs Tonge


Our transition lead has been managing the transition from Primary school to Secondary school here at Werneth for many years nad has close links with all our feeder Primary schools.

We run a transition programme which has proved highly successful in smoothing what can be a stressful time for children and their families. This support is extended through Year 7 as the transition lead is also the Year Inclusion Manager for Year 7.

Their service is also extended to parents who have any issues or concerns regarding their children and they are available at any time throughout the school day.

School Travel for September 2021

All pupils aged 11- 16 will require an IGO card (from Transport for Greater Manchester) in order to travel on public transport at the concessionary rate, and this also includes school services.  A high  number of young people will use public transport and school services to travel to school and it is important that they have an IGO card in order to facilitate this. Students will also need to apply separately for the Yellow Bus scheme and also free school travel if you are eligible and do not currently benefit from this.   Those pupils who are already in receipt of free school travel will receive a renewal letter over the next few days and do not need to reapply.

Unfortunately last year a number of pupils did not apply for the Yellow Bus scheme within timescales, and this meant some bus routes were cancelled. 

Applications for Igo passes, apply at: (available now)

Applications for the Yellow Bus Scheme, apply at: available 1st June 30th June)

Applications for free school travel (for eligible pupils), apply at: (available week of the 6th May DEADLINE to apply 30th June for September start)

Failure to apply for places on the Yellow  Bus Scheme may result in no buses being provided again this year and this may then cause difficulties again with getting to school.
