Sunflower Competition!

31 March 2023

The class of 2028 will be joining us in September and we would like to offer a warm welcome to our new students and their families. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our school community over the coming months.

All Year 6 joining us in September should have received a welcome pack in the post - we hope you liked it! Inside you will have found a pack of sunflower seeds; if you’re wanting to grow them inside to start with, it’s an ideal time to start planting now!

We will be awarding prizes to the best sunflowers in lots of different categories (including the tallest) when you arrive with us in September, so make sure to take lots of pictures of them as they grow.

Simply send us your photos via email ( or tag us in your sunflower photos over at:

Departments in school are growing their sunflowers too so look out for updates and the winner of our staff competition!

We’re here to make the transition to secondary school as smooth as possible so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. You can also find key information and dates on the Welcome to Longdendale page.

Happy growing!
