The First Day in September


Year 7 and 11 students only to come in. Year 7 students to be met by Year 11s and directed to the Hall. They are collected by the House Captains and Heads of House and taken to their Family Tutor Grups.

The Year 7s will then have a Welcome Assembly. The Assembly explains Vertical Tutoring, the House System, the role of the Student Mentors and procedural information needed for the day ahead. They return to the tutor group from some group gelling activities as a whole group. The Year 11 mentors then have a 1:1 session with their Year 7 mentee  in which they go through induction process: timetables, tour of the school, discussion of concerns, use of planners, lockers etc.

Year 11 students take Y.6 students to their first lesson. The Year 11 mentors have a review meeting at the end of the day to ensure that the Year 7 mentees have enjoyed their day and that there are no worries about the following day.
