Easter School Gives New Year 7s An Egg-Cellent Start!
/ Categories: News
Our first-ever Easter School was a brilliant success, with our newest cohort of students enjoying a fabulous three days of getting to know their new school better.
Over 120 of our new Year 7s - due to officially start in September - attended Easter School, with a wide range of activities taking place to support them in meeting their new classmates, navigating the building, and familiarising themselves with some of the differences between primary school and secondary school.
Students had the opportunity to take part in African drumming workshops, play dodgeball, create their own comics and take part in a Jubilee-themed Arts and Crafts session.
They were also challenged to a treasure hunt around school, with Easter eggs placed in key locations to help them find their way around.
At the end of each day, students were rewarded with spot prizes and certificates, while on the final day everyone took part in a celebration assembly that looked back at how much progress everyone made over the week. One of our African drumming groups even showcased their talents in front of the rest of the Year Group!
Assistant Principal Mrs Milnes, who oversees transition, said: "This has been an amazing opportunity to get to know our newest students and it has been an absolute pleasure to meet them over the past few days.
"Their behaviour has been exemplary and it has been wonderful to see them settling in, making new friends and taking the first steps to become active members of our community."
Our next transition event is our New Parents Evening, which will take place on 16th June, followed by a Transition Day where students will spend the full school day with us on 7th July.
