Cashless Catering

A polite reminder:

Please can you top up your child’s cashless catering accounts via Parent Pay to ensure your child is able to purchase food during their lunch break. We also urge parents to check their email accounts for information regarding the upcoming school census.

Many Thanks.

Year 7 Parents Questionnaire

Shortly before Christmas 148 parents of Year 7 students kindly completed a questionnaire giving us feedback on the transition process. You can read details, including our response to the issues raised, by clicking HERE.

Overall, the results were exceptionally positive: for example, 97% of parents say their child has settled well since September and 98% would recommend Lymm High School to other parents. We will never be complacent about identifying areas in which we can improve further, but it was very pleasing to see how happy Year 7 parents evidently are about the way the school has looked after their children during the first few months of secondary school.
