Welcome to our New Year 7
At Sir Jonathan North we do our best to make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as we can. Some of the girls will already have attended taster sessions in Years 4 and 5. Many of the girls have attended summer schools, some of our community arts activities or have visited us on Open Evening with parents or carers.
We visit feeder primary schools in the summer term to get to know students before they visit us on transfer day to allay their fears of ‘starting big school’.
Tuesday 29 August, the big day arrived for Year 7 2017 starting at Sir Jonathan North. The girls spent their day with their tutor groups taking part in treasure hunts and murder mystery activities, working in teams to win prizes. Students had a fabulous day and the feedback was brilliant especially about lunchtime as they all had a free meal to test out our great menu!
The girls have settled well and already showed they were very sensible and responsible during our very first fire drill on Wednesday.
We are now looking forward to our Team Building Trip at The Outdoor Pursuits Centre in September.
We hope that your daughter has enjoyed her first few days at Sir Jonathan North and has settled in well. We look forward working with and supporting her through the next 5 years.
Miss Rhodes, Year 7 Progress Leader
