We are looking forward to seeing you!

We are happy to welcome you to Colne Park High School, where you and your child are about to embark on the next exciting stage of their academic and personal development journey.

Park High School is a vibrant and academically successful school offering an extensive and balanced curriculum and a rich and diverse programme of extra-curricular activities, all supported by an exceptional pastoral system. Here at Park we place students' needs at the very heart of everything we do. We all want the absolute best for our young people who need to be empowered to shine, grow and develop into the best they can possibly be. This is the Park Family way!

This page will be your first point of contact for all things transition.  You will find key pieces of information here, but can of course email with any other queries which you may have.

Mrs J Casper-Smith - Assistant Headteacher overseeing Transition 

"This year I will be closely working with Mrs Coward to ensure, as always, you and your children have a smooth and well-informed Transition to Park High School.  I thoroughly enjoy this part of my job; meeting all our new students is something I look forward to every year!

Mrs Amanda Coward - Year 7 Transition Lead

"September will mark the start of my 16th year at Park High School (time flies!) having joined the Park family in 2008. It is an absolute pleasure to have been part of our wonderful and well-known Pastoral Team. During my time I have been Head of Year 7 for several years before the move into the vertical house system. My role has evolved into leading our established student Wellbeing Team and Safeguarding. In addition, I remain involved in Year 6 to 7 Transition throughout this time and bring a wealth of experience. I love the role and am more than happy to be 'School Mum' to 200+ new students (a nickname affectionately given to me that has now stuck!)

Working with Year 7, I recognise our family extends beyond the school walls and encompasses the Park community. We continue to build and maintain excellent relationships with parents and carers, relationships which undoubtedly contribute to our children's success at school. We value and act on all feedback we receive from the Park community and constantly strive to provide the best care and education possible for our students; transition included.

I always look forward to supporting students as they embark upon their journey with us at Park.  I cannot wait to get to know you and your families in person".

If you have any queries that are not addressed by the information on this page, please do not hesitate to contact me on".
