We take great pride in our induction of new students in the knowledge that a settled and happy student will flourish academically and socially We work closely with our feeder primary schools to exchange academic and pastoral information on the students which is used strategically to plan the curriculum and pastoral support. Students looking at enrolling at Lytham St Annes High School are given the opportunity to look around our school and find out all about the exciting subjects we offer at our Annual Open Evening in October.
Furthermore, all students take part in an exciting induction day, with many visiting our school for additional sporting, arts and other events. We understand fully that the move from primary school to secondary school can seem like a massive jump. However, please be assured that as a school we are committed to ensuring that this move is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
However, if you have any questions or concerns then please feel free to contact us. Please be aware that there is no such thing as a silly question, so if anything is worrying you, please email us to put your mind at ease. Alternatively visit our Transition page for more information.
Lytham St Annes High School is divided by a college system which ensures that students belong to smaller groups throughout school ensuring a continuity of staff and allowing family members and friendship groups to be kept together.
Our school is divided into six colleges, which are named after individuals who the students believe have shaped our learning or inspired us - King College, Whittle College, Holmes College, Lennon College, Curie College and Newton College.
This is where our amazing full time, experienced College Leaders play a major part in your child’s life. They will be a key point of contact for parents as well as the person who supports, guides and challenges your child at Lytham St Annes High School.
Our college system is seen by many as a real strength, celebrating successes, whilst also being available to offer support where needed. Our values of aspiration, endeavour, integrity and respect are shared through our college system!
We believe that each one of our students is more than a collection of grades; they are unique individuals each with different talents, skills and abilities, some of which they haven’t even discovered yet. And as one of the largest schools in Lancashire, our school provides an excellent education and offers a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities. We even run several student groups and committees which are excellent opportunities for students to get involved with the topics that matter to them and help develop our school community and the wider community.
