Welcome September 2020 Starters!

Welcome from Mrs Gibson, Headteacher:

Message from Ms Gee (Progress Leader for Year 7):

We are really looking forward to getting back to school and meeting you as you move from Year 6 into Year 7. Usually we have a week’s worth of lessons at the beginning of July known as ‘Transition Week’. As we cannot do that this year we have sent home a Transition Pack for you to work through.  This pack will give you a taste of what secondary school will be like.  Click here to view the pack. We’re hoping that we’ll answer some of your questions, give you a positive experience and settle any nerves before the summer holidays. 

We would love to hear from you. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, then email Ms Gee and she will get back to you.  

 


Reflections from some of our current Year 7 pupils:

I believe that the school is suited for every student and you’ll get lots of help. You have so much fun, even when you are learning.’

‘I was ready to move on to big school and straight away I knew I was going to be happy here.’

‘I was a bit nervous on the first morning but everyone was helpful and I saw some friends who were in Year 8 which was lovely.’

 

Below are some of the staff members you will see regularly while you are in Year 7 and who are available to support you:
