Moving Up From Primary School

Starting secondary school is an exciting time and to welcome our new students into Year 7, we have set up the Year 7 Base which is ‘a school within a school’. This unique facility eases the transition from primary to secondary education and ensures that all our students feel confident, safe and secure as they continue their learning.

Year 7 students have their own supervised playground. They also have a separate area for lunch and break-times so they can have space to enjoy their free time with their new friends.

Each student has their own dedicated Year 7 tutor who will get to know them and ensure they settle in as quickly as possible, this is in addition to a dedicated team of pastoral staff for Year 7.

Before students start in September, they will have already spent a day in the school in the last term of primary school, as well as attending welcome events for new students and parents.
