Transition 2020

Welcome to Cardinal Allen Catholic High School. Transition from primary to secondary school is an extremely important, exciting moment in the life of any child. This year, of course, the COVID-19 outbreak has meant we have had to approach the transition a little differently. I would like to assure you that we are determined to ensure that your child receives the best welcome and start to their life in the Cardinal Allen family.

We are in contact with all primaries and are currently gathering lots of information about our new pupils to ensure the move to High School is as smooth as possible.

Thank you for choosing our school. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
