Primary School Visits

In the last few weeks of the summer term in Year 6, a teacher from Lymm High School will visit feeder Primary Schools in the local area. This is a great chance for Year 6 students to get to know Lymm High staff better, and for us to gather information about the children joining us, to ensure a smooth transition process.

Transition Day

We invite all new students who will be joining Lymm High School to a Transition Day on Wednesday 3rd July 2024, filled with fun activities and the chance to experience typical lessons. Students will get the chance to meet staff and their new peers. Your child can also use this opportunity to familiarise themselves with the building, school grounds and new routines.

The 'Tynny' Experience

Ty’n-y-Felin, or ‘Tynny’ as it is affectionately known, is our very own residential centre set amid rocky creeks and heather-clad moorland on the isle of Anglesey.

The purpose-built activity holiday centre is situated in 35 acres of land, with its own access to the inland sea or Cymryron straits.

Each Hall group is invited to visit Tynny in the first term of Year 7 for a 3-day programme that includes a range of activities such as; orienteering, problem solving, charity work, crabbing at the creek and a visit to the island’s Silver Bay.
