Transition Portal

Dear Parents, Carers and Year 6 pupils, we really look forward to welcoming you to our school in September. We are delighted that you and your child will be joining us for what I am sure will be an extremely exciting, rewarding and enriching seven years ahead. It sounds like a long time, but the time really does fly! In a Christ centred community, we will always put your child first in every decision we take and will make sure they are well cared for and loved during their time at SPH.

We are here to support you all in the transition from primary to secondary school and want to make this as smooth as possible.
To assist with this, we have set up our ‘Transition Portal’. This will be regularly updated with information for your child so please keep checking in for helpful documents, links and videos.

If you have any questions, please just ask by emailing the Transition Support Team on:

SPH-Transition@sphcs.co.uk

We cannot wait to meet you. Take care and God Bless.

Please notify the Welfare officer if any changes are made to your child′s medical conditions.

Bonnie the Therapy Dog

Our Student Wellbeing Support team work very closely with our young people and are in regular communication with our Heads of Year to provide the best internal support/signposted guidance possible. Please do speak with your son/daughter’s tutor, Head of Year or email Mrs Casey directly for any guidance or advice jcasey@sphcs.co.uk

Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy at St Philip Howard is a vibrant and faith filled movement unlike any other. Here at SPHCS we have a Chaplaincy Team made up of four Chaplains who are all dedicated to their own faith and passionate about sharing the love of God with the young people in our care.

The Catholic Ethos of the school is embodied by every member of staff as we work tirelessly to show pupils that they are loved and respected.

Students at SPHCS are given many opportunities to explore their own faith; there is collective worship every morning, yearly retreat days for students in all year groups, times of quiet reflection in the newly built school Chapel, small prayer groups within Key Stage 3, opportunities for volunteering the community and access to the Sacraments throughout the year.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Chaplaincy at St Philip Howard, please do contact The Chaplaincy Team by emailing Chaplaincy@sphcs.co.uk
