Primary school students due to join Highfields in September were given their first taste of life at the school during a two-day induction.
Year 6 pupils took part in a range of lessons, whilst meeting teachers, their Year Manager and fellow students from other primary schools.
Headteacher, Mr G Tate, said: “The induction period is a great opportunity for our new students to get a feel of Highfields before they start in September.
“During these days they enjoyed a range of lessons and activities, spent lunchtime with us and met their Year Manager and new classmates.
“The transition from primary to secondary school is a big step, but I am sure they will all be happy and successful at our school, and I was delighted welcome them for their induction.”
The induction period will be followed by a ‘New Parents Evening’ on Wednesday 10 July in the Lyceum. There will be two presentations at 5pm and 6:30pm from Mr Tate and Head of Lower School, Ms J Parker.
School uniform supplier, Lads & Lasses, will also be present during this evening and will be available from 4:30pm to 7pm to answer questions and take orders.
Mr Tate will also be available in school on Thursday 11 July between 11am and 12.30pm on a drop-in basis to answer any further questions.
