Plenty Of Smiling Faces On Induction Day
On Wednesday 29 June the College welcomed 150 pupils who will be joining the school this coming September, most will be joining in Year 7 but some are joining higher years.
The Induction Day was a chance for them to meet fellow pupils, familiarise themselves with the layout of the school, get a feel for the sorts of lessons they can expect and generally to answer questions, allay fears and ease the transition to their new school.
Our prospective Year 7s arrived looking excited and a little bit nervous in readiness for an action-packed day. Head of Transition, Susan Harris greeted them warmly and soon had them organised into groups before their friendly Sixth Form helpers led them off to try sample lessons.
During the day they also met their new Tutor Groups, got to grips with the lunch queue and the dining room, and in the afternoon after more lessons, they met their Heads of House and enjoyed some fun team building activities. There was lots of excellent advice on offer from staff and current pupils and of course no induction day would be complete without that special treat, a legendary Princethorpe cookie!
We saw plenty of smiling faces and it is clear that everyone enjoyed making new friends. We look forward to welcoming the Year 7s back again just before the start of the autumn term for the Year 7 Activity Day on Friday 2 September.
