Welcome from Mr Jenkins

Welcome from Mr Jenkins

It is with great pleasure that we welcome your child to Ralph Allen School.  We are delighted that you have chosen us as your school and we are very much looking forward to meeting all the new students and welcoming them into our community.

Over the next couple of months, it is normal for you to feel anxious about the transition and you may feel as though you have missed some important information. We are here to fully support the transition from primary to secondary school. Please be reassured that all current information will be in the first instance uploaded to our website here.

Each year we hold two events for new joiners in July as a way of preparing them for their journey here with us:

  • Firstly,  the New Students’ Day, when your child spends a school day with us. (Thursday 4 July, 2024) followed by the evening when we invite you and your child to come and discuss the arrangements further in detail (6-8pm).

Please keep visiting this website for updated content and we will keep in touch with you about key dates and new information, supporting a successful transition to our school.  

Many families have a lot of the same questions and should you not be able to find the answers you need on our website then do not hesitate to contact one of the members of staff listed below:

Headteacher’s PA (Mrs H Baker) and Office Manager (Miss A Davies); who oversee admissions:
