Victoria Road School

A caring community where learners rise to the challenge

Hello Year 6,

Hope you are safe, and enjoying your time at home.

It is now coming to the exciting time where we are hearing from Castle Rushen High School about your transition ready to start there in September. We are very aware that this year things are a little bit different to normal, but we have been working very closely with Mr Kay and Mrs Kneen to make sure you don't miss out on anything and you are as prepared as possible ready for the exciting move! Mrs Lockyer, Mrs Strand and myself have already met with Mr Kay and Mrs Kneen to do our handover for all of you, so they already have a brief overview of all of you as a learner and your hobbies/interests!

This page will be your go to for anything related to transition to CRHS. I will be updating this page with documents as I am sent them, and also collating information that is put on the CRHS website/Facebook page.

Please keep checking up below for anything new!
