Students receive unique start to new school life 

As part of our Primary Transition Programme, the new Year 7 students recently spent the night camping and enjoying activities to help them settle in to their new learning environment.

The programme was specially developed to help new students get the best possible start to their secondary education by encouraging them to build new friendships and familiarise themselves with their new teachers.

On Friday 11th September, the Year 7 students made use of our school’s unique learning environment by spending the night camping in our extensive grounds. During the evening, students enjoyed fun and games as well as building a camp fire and toasting marsh mallows. The next morning they gutted fish and cooked them for breakfast over the camp fire and enjoyed team building and initiative based activities.      

Bryn Thomas, Headteacher said, “We understand how daunting it can be for new students starting secondary school, so our Primary Transition Programme is vitally important in helping the Year 7 students to get to know their peers, new teachers and their environment in a relaxed way. The camping took place in our stunning school grounds and the students particularly enjoyed making use of our outdoor classroom to learn new cookery skills.”

Julie Webber, parent of a Year 7 student, added, “My child is settling in to Year 7. Thank you all so much for the camp out last Friday. It's above and beyond for staff, but the children had a great time.”
