Information pack for new Year 7 parents and carers

We wish a very warm welcome to the Year 7 class of September 2021! We are sorry that we cannot see you all in person, but we hope the following information and presentations provide you with a full understanding of the events for you this term and what to expect in September.

Important Dates:

Tuesday 6 July: Meet Your Form Tutor Teams Meeting, 4.30-5.00pm. Mrs Mayes, Head of Year 7 will send details closer to the time.

Thursday 2 September: first day of school for Year 7 and Year 12 only ; all other year groups start on Friday 3 September. This replaces the taster day that was planned for this term that cannot take place in a meaningful way due to extended restrictions.

Bus to School
If you wish your child to use the 'school' bus this is run by an external company and as such, nothing to do with the school.  Therefore, you should call ASD Coaches on 01634 726412 to enquire.
