Normally, at the beginning of Key Stage 3, there are quite a few changes from Year 6 to Year 7.  However, due to the current situation there are not many at present.  Pupils are encouraged to be more independent in every aspect of school life and this is overseen by their caring Home Base Tutors with whom they will remain for 2 years.  The amount of homework increases with the expectation that it will be completed in time and to a good standard. 


There are more opportunities for pupils to take part in extra curricular activities, a major being becoming a Sports Leader.  This may  involve visits to First Schools to help with events and helping with our own KS2 pupils.  Educational visits are planned where relevant and reward visits (for example, bowling, cinema, swimming) after school have become part of the Year 7 experience.


All of the above prepare our pupils well for the challenges of Year 8.
