After completion of their Primary 7 year, pupils of Inch View Primary transfer to:
Perth High School, Oakbank Road, Perth, PH1 1HB Phone: 01738 628271
Throughout the year there is liaison with Perth High and teachers will visit to talk with the Primary 7 children. There will also be opportunities for parents and pupils to visit the Secondary School. Parents are invited to attend information sessions by Perth High School. Should your child have additional support needs that may impact on the transition process, early meetings will be held with the receiving school to ensure that a clear plan is in place to ensure success. Our Community Link Worker, based at Perth High, will also support.
Transition Arrangements for those living in the Bertha Park High School Catchment Area
Bertha Park High School will be the first additional secondary school to be built in Perth and Kinross since 1972. Perth and Kinross are one of the fastest growing areas of Scotland and as a result Perth Secondary schools will be near to capacity by 2021. A review of the school estate identified a new Perth secondary school as a priority. The new Bertha Park High School reflects the projected growth in population and resulting house building and infrastructure required to support this.
The new secondary school catchment area will include pupils from the Local Development Plan (LDP) housing areas at Bertha Park, Almond Valley and Perth West. They will be joined by the primary school catchment areas serving Auchtergaven, Logiealmond, Methven, Pitcairn, Ruthvenfield, Oudenarde, Forgandenny, Forteviot and Dunbarney.
Further information is available on the Council’s website as follows:
Parents who wish their child to attend a Secondary School other than the one above should complete a placing request form and submit it to Education and Children’s Services, Pullar House, 35 Kinnoull Street, Perth, PH1 5GD, between January and March. Parents should receive notification of transfer to Secondary School by April of the year of transfer.
