The first day
We know that your first day at high school in September can be both exciting and nerve-racking! That's why we have put together this website to help you get to know your new school well before arriving in September.
This is how the first day normally operates - however this may change due to the current pandemic. Keep checking the website for details of the first day, when it is and what will happen.
What happens on the first day?
When you arrive into school (between 8.30am and 8.40am) you will need to go straight to the Main Hall where you will be greeted by Mr Lomas and your new form tutor.
Also in the Hall will be your Hear4U peer mentors who will help you find the right seat and settle you in.
There will then be a Welcome Assembly from Mr Lomas, Mr Christey (Headteacher) and your Head of Year, Mrs Wright.
Once the assembly is finished you will be escorted to your new form rooms by your form tutor and usually spend all of Period 1 with them. They will go through the basics with you and give you your personal timetables.
Usually after Period 1 you will go off to your first lesson of the day.
What happens if I get lost or I am late?
Don't worry! You will soon find your way around the school. There are plenty of older pupils and teachers who can guide you to the right place. If you are late in your first week, your teachers will understand.
What about lunches?
On the first day, and usually for the first week or two, you will go to lunch earlier than the rest of the school. This is so you can get used to how the lunch system works. You will also be escorted to the gate/bus park early at the end of the school day so you know where to go and can be the first ones out...once the bell has rung of course!
Term starts for you on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
