Year 7

Year 7 – Welcome

A huge welcome to all of our new Year 7 to what we are hoping will be a very successful yet challenging year. Having settled into their new classes and school routines, the girls will quickly find their feet and excel.

The students follow a diverse and enriched curriculum in year 7, studying the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, PE and ICT; in addition to languages, technology, art, geography, history, RE, dance drama and music.   Each Thursday afternoon, the student will participate in an extra-curricular activity for a term, chosen from a wide range of exciting activities.

We operate a vertical tutoring and house system, an opportunity for students to become involve in a wide range of activities to promote a sense of togetherness and community spirit. P2 provide tutors with the opportunity to mentor students and to develop literacy, numeracy and debating skills.

With new routines it’s important that all students are aware of the expectations each lesson, students should come to school equipped with the correct uniform, planner, reading book and pencil case. The girls participate in 15 minutes reading at the beginning of period 1 and after lunch.  Home learning is an essential learning opportunity and the students need to ensure that this is completed to avoid any unnecessary sanctions. The homework is issued on a timetable, and can be monitored by parents on the SIM’s Learning gateway.  Parents’ can access this from home using the passwords issued at the beginning of term.
