TEACHERS

You will have different teachers for each subject so there will be lots of new people to get to know.

You will see your tutor twice a day during registration. You can ask your tutor if there is anything that you are not sure of or are worried about.

Your Head of Year works with your tutors to make sure that you are able to achieve your true potential in every area of college life. You can find them if you have any problems or if there is some- thing you think they’d like to know. Heads of Year love to hear good news!

There are lots of other members of staff in school that may not be your teachers, however they will be happy to help if you need it.

ALL MEMBERS OF STAFF AT THE COLLEGE SHOULD BE TREATED WITH THE SAME RESPECT AND GOOD MANNERS.

HOME LEARNING

You will be set home learning from each subject (Maths, English, Science, Art, Drama, Languages, Geography, History, ICT, Life skills, Music & Technology) but don’t worry they won’t all be on the same day!

WHAT IS EXPECTED?

  • Always be equipped and ready to learn
  • Participate and listen to others
  • Be responsible for your learning and try to work things out yourself
  • Ask and answer questions about your learning
  • Respond to feedback and actions straight away

After school activities start.

The bell rings at the beginning & the end of lessons, apart from period 2 & 3 where you will be dismissed by your teacher. There is a warning bell at the start of the day, at the end of lunch & break time, so that you know it’s time to go to lessons or registration.

Once you arrive at school you MUST stay on the site until you leave at 3.30pm. Students are not permitted to leave school during lunchtime, unless you have a signed lunch pass.

Keep all your belongings with you throughout the day – you can get a locker to keep things in if you wish. It is important that all of your belongings are clearly named.

If you are ill you go to the Student Office & tell them. You do not ring home. The school will get in contact with parents if you need to go home.
