Year 7 find their feet

The new Year 7 pupils are making a fantastic start to their time at St Philip’s and are getting to know the school through a number of structured activities. As part of their induction, the pupils have been tracking down members of staff who do not teach them directly and quizzing them about their likes and dislikes.

Head teacher, Mr Walsh was asked to come up with his favourite word and a place he liked to visit by the enthusiastic group of pupils. They will be using the favourite words collected from staff in their literacy lessons to help with a creative writing project.

It is a great way for the new Year 7s to get to know their new school and extend their learning at the same time.

 

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
