Our main new Year 7 intake day will take place on Thursday 4th July 2019.

The intake evening starts at 4.30pm and all parents/carers are invited to attend. There will be an opportunity to meet your child’s new Form Tutor, the Principal and other senior staff. There will also be an opportunity for you to find out more specifics about the day to day running of the College.

Most young people making the transfer from a smaller primary school to a larger secondary school have anxieties about the changes but also positive anticipations about the new opportunities.

Here are two reports from our current year 7’s about their feelings on the first day, written in their own words.
