Welcome to Year 7
Starting secondary school is a very exciting time. Moving up from your primary school and Year 6 into Year 7 is such an important step. It is an opportunity to start afresh with a vision of the individuals you want to become tomorrow. This year is the next step in your school journey.
I believe every one of you in this year group is capable of brilliance; to do this you need to recognise your strengths and build upon your weaknesses with perseverance and resilience.
At Presdales you will experience an environment in which you can achieve academic success but also find encouragement to develop moral values, community responsibility and enhanced personal and social skills. I would like to see each and every member of the Year 7 community take full advantage of the opportunities provided and to develop the skills to overcome the challenges that will come your way.
In Year 7 we like to teach the importance of being organised and prepared for every lesson. This involves having the appropriate equipment, completing all homework, being in the right frame of mind to concentrate throughout every lesson and being willing to attend school clubs. This will help us to build an environment in which every student can flourish.
Our Year 7 message focuses on one of the key school values – kindness. This is something that all students can demonstrate and develop throughout their time at Presdales at no cost to themselves and is so important when joining and belonging to a school community such as ours.
If you would like to discuss student progress or welfare, please feel free to contact me or your daughter’s form tutor or alternatively your daughter’s subject teacher.
