Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:


We are delighted to be able to welcome all our students in years 7-9 to our beginning of school ceremonies on Tuesday 17th August 2021.

The assemblies and mentor times take place during Tuesday morning in our Student Lounge in Senior School. Please check the time of your assembly and when you meet your mentor class in the schedule below. Mentor rooms will be posted in the reception area for you to check on arrival. Please check on School Soft for information from your mentors.

The students in years 7-9 will be having an Introduction day on Wednesday 18thAugust where they are given important information and are together in their classes with their mentors, taking part in team building activities within their year group. Parents will be contacted by the mentors at the beginning of term, and parents are also warmly invited to meet the mentors via our digital platform Google Meets at our “Back to school nights” at the beginning of term. We look forward to welcoming back all students on Tuesday 17th August.


Best Regards,
