The Year 7 pastoral team would like to welcome students to Stanborough School as they begin a new and exciting chapter in their lives. Year 7 is a crucial year for students to not only make a positive start to Stanborough School but also their whole secondary school career.
The team will work hard to make the transition process from primary to secondary school as smooth as possible. We are committed to providing students with a comprehensive induction programme that strives to help them settle into life at Stanborough.
Tutor time is about monitoring progress and ensuring students make new friends, learn how to organise themselves and know what the expectations are at secondary school. We also cover issues such as recycling, road safety and puberty.
We want to help students cope with the stresses and strains of changing schools and help them all achieve their potential. There are lots of ways we can support students, like homework clubs, and we make sure we equip students with the knowledge to support themselves. It is about getting into the right routine now so that subsequent years run efficiently and students can gain the qualifications and experience they deserve.
We also offer extra-curricular activities in Year 7 and these run after school in a variety of subject areas. There is also a Year 7 PGL trip which is a really fun way to experience life outside the normal school day. Students can also become part of the Year 7 Year Council or nominate themselves to be one of our charity or subject reps. We encourage any involvement in extra-curricular activities and taking on leadership roles, as this puts students in an excellent position when moving up to Year 8 and beyond.
