Welcome to a dedicated transition section of our school website. This is designed specifically to welcome you, our new students and parents, as the newest members of the Park View family.
Moving school is always both a very exciting and nerve racking time. We are sure that no matter what your interests or ambitions there is something at Park View that has already sparked your imagination and that you are really excited to become involved in.
We are very lucky to have two school sites, North Lodge allows everyone to get used to a bigger setting but is still small enough for everyone to know each other. But, we also get all of the benefits of being part of a much larger school community. Our older students provide us with fantastic role models and a vast range of interests which they are more than happy to share by running clubs and societies during and after school.
I am sure these pages will help to fill you full of more excitement and confidence at the prospect of moving to Park View. They will give you a flavour of what we are doing to get to know you before you arrive with us and keep you connected to what is happening at the school as you are now part of our school community.
Please remember that if you do have a specific worry about anything or you haven’t managed to find an answer to a question do not hesitate to contact any member of our dedicated transition team. This can be either by telephoning the school or emailing one of us.

Please keep checking to see if there are updates and changes, don’t forget to email if you have any queries. We are sure you will not be the only parent or child that has that worry.
