  • How will I find my way around school? +

    When students start school, they will be given a map and a tour of the school by their Tutor. Students will find very quickly that they start to remember their way around, but they can always ask if they are unsure. Teachers are sensitive to the fact that Year 7 need to acclimatise to the school’s layout.
  • What if I get lost on the way to lessons? +

    If students get lost on the way to lessons, they should just ask someone. Whether that is a student or member of staff, there are always many people to ask. Everyone is friendly, approachable and willing to help.
