WHAT OUR NEW YEAR 7s SAY
This is the best
school in the
world!
I like all the things
we have already
done this year
and science
was great!
I was worried about
starting secondary school
but by the time I got here I
knew lots of teachers and
it wasn’t hard at all.
I like it because we
have lots of subjects
and the school is really
nice with lots of space
to play.
I have made lots of
new friends. The
camping was brilliant!
It feels more grown up
and I am already
learning loads.
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!
Hear about it from two of our new year 7
students and our Senior Prefects
