This summer, for the first time, a wide range of free summer holiday activities is being provided across the borough of Bury – including Bury, Prestwich, Radcliffe,
Ramsbottom, Tottington and Whitefield.
The activities are all designed to be fun, to help children grow in self-confidence, to learn something new and to include a healthy meal. Taking part is free for children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
The activities are brought to you by Bury Council; Bury Voluntary, Community and Faith Alliance; Bury’s schools and the activity providers listed in this booklet.

To all our new pupils starting in September
Join us for an action-packed week at Tottington High School from 9th-13th August from 9.00am-3.00pm.
Our Summer school has been designed to ensure the transition from primary to secondary is as easy as possible for both students and parents.
The week will include both academic and enrichment activities to ensure students feel prepared and excited to start at Tottington in September.
Summer School is free of charge. Places are limited.
Deadline for applications is Friday 9th July.
** Summer School is only open to children who will be joining us here in September.

We’ve created a brand-new website designed to provide our new Year 7 students joining us this September with the chance to really think about moving up to secondary school, and to find out more about the school, the adults who work here and what it is like to be a Tottington High School pupil.
The new website contains a welcome video featuring some of our current Year 7 students (filmed before recent restrictions on face-coverings), lots of questions that our new pupils might have about their new school, and a first look at our new school uniform. There’s also an activity booklet, packed full of exercises designed to help with the transition to secondary school.
There’s something for parents and carers too! Our New Parents’ Guide booklet is bursting with information you’ll need to help us support your child during their time here, plus there’s some advice about how you can support your child as they move from primary to secondary school.
We plan to update the new website regularly – next week we will be adding a new page all about our Summer School offering which will take place during the summer break, so stay tuned for that.
Here’s a link to the new website: transition.tottington.bury.sch.uk. Check it out and let us know what you think.
