Year 7 are invited in for the afternoon on our INSET day in full uniform.  On arrival your child will be met in the foyer and directed to the theatre to meet their tutor.  The afternoon starts with an assembly led by the Headteacher, Senior Deputy Head and Phase Leader, who will welcome them to the Academy.  The afternoon will be spent with their tutor group, and they will receive their timetables, be given access to the SIMS App (which will be their electronic planner) and  have an opportunity to tour the school to orientate themselves.  They will complete activities to get to know their classmates and will have an electronic fob so they can access the photocopiers, library and pay for meals in the canteen and cafe.  We will also take pictures of them in their tutor groups and as a year group.
