Starting School

Dear Parent/ Carer,

Welcome to the ‘Starting School’ section of our website.

Starting school is an exciting time for all children, which marks their transition within Early Level from Nursery to Primary 1. Most children find starting school to be a very positive experience, as it provides a range of new opportunities which develops their curiosity in learning.

As well as being exciting, this can also be an apprehensive period for you as parents and carers. It can also be quite an unsettled time for children too where they meet new children and work towards achieving new learning goals. Here at Hythehill, we strive to make the transition to school a positive experience for all children as well as parents and carers.

Detailed within this section of the website, you can find a variety of information and documents about starting Primary 1 at Hythehill School. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


We look forward to working with both you and your child.
