Year 7 is an exciting time; a new school, new friends, new subjects and new teachers.  Students are actively encouraged to get involved in every aspect of school life.  Once the year has started the Year 7 pastoral team, including the Senior Leader, Year Leader, Form Tutors, Pupil Support Assistant, and support staff, all work hard to ensure the students settle in happily.

There are a number of events and schemes in place to help students settle in. Early in the first half term we run team building exercises where students and tutors take time off the normal timetable and partake in fun activities designed to bond a tutor group and help new friendships form. Later in the first term we run a ‘Meet the Tutor Evening’ when parents are invited into meet their daughter’s tutor and discuss how they have settled in so far.

For those students who need a little more support we run a peer mentoring system where a selection of our Year 10 ‘Transition Team’ students are extensively trained and then build relationships with specific Year 7 students within a safe environment.   As a year team we also work very closely with the Learning Support Department to provide nurture groups and additional academic support where necessary.

One of the key features to students feeling safe and happy in school is effective communication. If you do have and questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact either the Year Leader or Form Tutor, either by phone or email (addresses below).
