Admissions and Transition

On this page you’ll find information about what it means to be a part of the Marple Hall School community. Please have a look at the videos, read the information in the prospectus and check out all the other stuff too. We’re proud to show off our Marple Hall Spirit in action and hope that you are excited at the prospect of joining us in September 2023

What’s on offer?

We have some videos for you to enjoy:

  • Presentations from Mr Barker, Miss Gregory (Deputy Headteacher) and Miss Cook (Assistant Headteacher)
  • The views of some existing students on their journey through school
  • Support and wellbeing – The Marple Hall Offer
  • A short video showing off the school in action
  • The Open Evening video produced just before Covid hit.

Further information

Please see below links to a wide range of information on everything related to moving to MHS next September

Marple Hall uses the Stockport Local Authority admissions process

Applications for Year 7 will open in September, just after your child has started in Year 6. Applications usually close in November, and you will hear whether or not your child has been offered a place at Marple Hall in March.

Starting with us

If you have anything you wish to discuss with us regarding your child’s transfer, please email our transition email in the first instance – transition@marplehall.stockport.sch.uk with any queries/concerns.
Please be aware this inbox is only active from the offer day ( beginning of March ) until mid September, and during this time is checked weekdays between 8am and 4pm.

If you have an enquiry outside of this time please contact main reception on – 0161 427 7966

Once your child has been offered a place we correspond with prospective parents directly regarding transition. A copy of all relevant information is posted on this page.


Students will need

  • For all lessons: a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, pencil sharpener and some colouring pencils
  • For maths: a calculator (this can be purchased through school via School Gateway), a pair of compasses and a protractor. Anything specialised will be supplied in lesson.
  • For PE: School PE kit

Home-School Communications

We have two systems which enable parents and carers to keep track of students’ school life. We encourage everyone with parental responsibility for our students to install both apps.
