Welcome to the College

Starting College

Year 7 Form Tutors

The role of a form tutor.

You will meet with your Form Tutor daily, they will take a register, pass on important notices and deliver the tutorial programme. The programme covers topics such as keeping healthy, staying safe online, relationships and how to manage your money. Your Form Tutor is your first point of contact if you have any worries or concerns, as well as helping you keep track of progress in lessons.

Get Ready for Year 7 Transition Home Activities

As part of our package to welcome students to Year 7, we have the following activities to complete at home.

Palindromes Investigation.
The Maths department have set a number investigation to be completed.  Students should bring this completed task to College on Wednesday 31 August. Please click here to download.

Reading Activity: Jemima Small
Each student will be given a copy of the text “Jemima Small” by Tasmin Winter or “D Dog-Days” by Tom Palmer on the Transition Day. This needs to be read at home over the summer break.

Be Awesome, Go Big Workbook.
