Your first day

FIRST DAY OF TERM – Thursday 3rd September 2020

Year 7 pupils should report to the Head of Year 7, assembling in the top playground, at 8.45 am, in full school uniform.  They will need a bag, pens, pencil, ruler and Games kit.

The day will be spent familiarising pupils with the school, including a ‘sample' of lessons where books may be handed out, and will end at the normal time of 3.35 p.m.

School buses will be available on this day; parents collecting their sons should wait by the Frederick Road pedestrian gate of the school. 

Please do not wait for your son outside the school gates in Upper Thomas Street.
