Are you a parent thinking of sending your child to Light Hall School? Are you a student who will be joining us at Light Hall School? If the answer to either of these questions is ‘yes’ then these pages have lots of information for you.

Our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page is based on questions that parents of new students have raised. We also offer information evenings for parents and induction days for students. Together, we can ensure that everyone is prepared for a smooth and successful transition from primary to secondary school. Use the tabs to the right to find all the information and support you need.
