Transition 2023

Information for Year 6 students starting in September 2023 

Please check this page for regular updates.

On behalf of all the staff at Colne Valley High School, I would like extend a warm welcome and we looking forward to getting to know you better during this transition period. As you are aware there are certain key events coming up over the next few months which will be important for preparing you and your child for their start on Tuesday 5th September, 2023.

Please browse our dedicated transition page for the latest news and updates. 


 My Name is Mr Wilson and I will be your child’s achievement co-ordinator over the next five years.

I have always believed that the best way a person can utilise their knowledge, is to pass it on to others. I wanted to be a teacher since I was seven years old! I’ve been teaching since I finished University in 2012, and since 2015, teaching Design & Technology at Colne Valley High School.


I have already visited the majority of year 6 classes who will be joining us in September, and I’m so excited to welcome you all to Colne Valley High School and secondary school life. Please click here to browse through our Transition Guide to CVHS given out at our engagement evening on 5th July 2023.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me by emailing if you have any questions or concerns. 

K Wilson (Mr)

Achievement Co-Ordinator
