What happens on the first day?

Students meet their form tutor in the school hall.

The form tutor will take the students to their form room.

During the first morning students will be given a printed timetable, a student planner, homework timetable and allocated a locker.

During the morning students will probably complete an activity which tells their form tutor about their interests, strengths, talents, as well as what they find difficult.

Students will be informed about lunch-time arrangements, taken to the Dinning room and will view the menu offered for food and drink.

At some point in the day students will have a tour of the school where various areas will be shown to them, eg. the toilets, medical room, PE/ Dance/ Drama changing areas, Staffroom, Library.
