First Day of School

Term starts on Tuesday 5th September 2017. You need to arrive at school for 8.40am and make your way to the Junior Yard (on the corner of Lucas and Highfield Roads).  Your Head of Year, will meet you and escort you to the hall.

After a brief assembly, you will spend the rest of the morning with your form and form tutor. Some time will be spent looking at your timetable and discussing how to use your planner which your form tutor will give to you.

You will be taken on a tour of the school to help you find your way around.
