Moving from one school to another can be a challenging experience. Given the added uncertainty of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have shared our plans to help put the minds of parents, and our new S1 cohort, at ease. In addition, we have lots of useful information available on our "What you need to know before starting" section to help you get prepared for moving to Bertha Park High School.
Please note: Further detail on specific transition topics can be found using the sub-menu. Links are available on the right hand side menu.

Information sharing between our feeder primary schools and Mrs Stead (Principal Teacher of Support for Pupils), Mrs Cuthbertson and Mr McMartin (Principal Teachers of Guidance) began in January. This is an ongoing process with a large range of meetings planned up until the end of June 2020.
