Year 7 is an important year for your daughter, there are many activities and events which aim to support both parents and students settle and keep them informed of the progress being made across the year.

During Form time students will partake in many activities that will help them transition from primary to secondary school smoothly. Their tutor will be a great source of support as well as their Head of Year and the Year 12 and Year 13 prefects.
