Tips for our New Year 7 students

This week we look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students.

The following points may prove helpful as you join our school family here at Alsop

  • New Year 7 students should arrive for school on Wednesday September 6th for an 8:45am start.
  • Students should be in full uniform and have basic equipment with them such as pens, pencil, ruler etc. Have everything ready beforehand. Have your name on all items of uniform to help ensure you don’t lose anything.
  • Remember to bring money for lunch or of course a packed lunch.
  • Starting secondary school is a big step and we understand students may be feeling a little nervous but hopefully quite excited as well. Remember that all Alsop teachers, students and mentors will be there to help you particularly with finding your way around school.
  • It’s a good idea to practice your journey to and from school so you know exactly where you are going. Discuss this with parents or carers so you know arrangements for what’s happening in the first few days.
  • If there have been changes to any phone numbers for parents/carers then please bring new details with you on your first day.
  • You will receive your timetable on your first day. Use the information each evening to make sure you have everything ready for the next day.
  • Develop a routine regarding things like time at home, leisure time, getting up in the morning etc. Stick to your routine.
  • If you don’t do this already it’s a good idea to find some time to do some reading for pleasure. Reading always helps with our learning!
  • Should you have any worries or concerns then please tell someone whether it be your parent/carer or form tutor.
  • Remember that of last year’s year 7 students, 99% said they would recommend Alsop to new students.
  • You have chosen a great school – enjoy your future with us!
