GSO Test

First Day

Term starts on Tuesday 8th September 2020

Year 7 need to arrive at school for 8.40 am and make their way to the main school entrance where the Year 7 Leader and Form Tutors will meet them and show them to the school hall for a brief assembly.

The rest of the morning will be spent in form groups; looking at pupils' timetables, discussing how to use the pupil planner (homework diary) and taking a tour of the school. This will be followed by lunchtime.

Lessons will begin in the afternoon.

School will end at the normal time of 3.15 pm.

Parents are reminded not to park near the school on either side of Lucas Road as this can cause obstructions for the school buses and can be hazardous for pupils needing to cross the road.
