ALL SET FOR SEPTEMBER!
We enjoyed welcoming our prospective Year 7 students to the school over three days. They were able to get a really good idea of what life will be like here in September, experiencing lessons, break and lunchtime routines and a wide range of other activities. We think it’s true to say that the restaurant was hugely popular!
Not only did the students try lots of different subjects, from Geography and Science to Dance and Engineering, but they also got to know students in their tutor groups and forged new friendships, as well as familiarising themselves with the layout of the school and quickly worked out how to find their way around.
It was a joy to watch them settling in so quickly and such a pleasure to welcome them back to the disco to conclude their three-day visit, when Year 9 students Jack and Cameron were our fantastic DJs and played a key role in putting the brilliant playlist together.
Tom Westgate, who will be the students’ head of year when they start Year 7 in September, said: “It was great to welcome all the Year 6 students to school so they could get to the know their tutors and others student. All the students were excellent at throwing themselves into all the activities and they had a brilliant time. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to get to know them better and I look forward to seeing them in September.”
Many thanks to our amazing Year 10 Student Leaders who helped out and of course to our staff who went the extra mile to make sure that the new recruits settled in well and had such a positive experience.
