Preparation for Learning

In order to help you prepare for your secondary education in September, the English, Mathematics and Science departments have each put a pack of activities together. These will help you to be familiar with the teachers, your first topic and any safety rules (Science) ahead of joining us. There are also some virtual tours and quizzes for you to complete. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed putting them together.



Here are some extra activities for you to complete at home. If you manage to complete a row or column, you will receive your first Townsend house point! If you complete them all, you will receive five house points plus a reward card home. I wonder who will be first?
