Your first day

FIRST DAY OF TERM – Tuesday 5th September 2023

Year 7 pupils should report to the Pastoral Lead for Year 7, Mrs Blundell, assembling in the Hall, at 8.40 am, in full school uniform. They should enter the school via the top gate. 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 school's main entrance (Upper Thomas Street). 

Here is a map of the school site:
