We are holding two additional virtual events –

We are so sad to not be able to invite you to visit your new school at the moment but we still want to get to know you and can’t wait for you to be official members of our school community.

I know that there are going to be areas of worry for you and I would love to be able to give you some definite dates when we will all meet but at the moment I just don’t know.

Please keep an eye on this page for information around:

  • Dates for you to come and visit
  • Dates for parents and carers to visit
  • Uniform Information
  • Work you can do to prepare for your new school

You may have started thinking about what life might be like as a Year 7 – what do you think it might be like? What are you most excited about? What are you worried about?
Watch this film and see the views of those who have already experienced what Year 7 is like:

Give these activities a go with those around you. Remember it is good to talk about how you are feeling and getting someone to help you think through how to prepare yourself.
