Welcome Primary 7. We are so looking forward to welcoming you into Year 8 and into the ‘Nendrum Family’ at Nendrum College.
We are extremely delighted that you will be joining our school for the next chapter in your school life.
My name is Mrs Blake and I am the Head of Year 8. I am very excited to be working with you next year.
Rest assured, you are going to have an amazing and successful time at Nendrum College.
Starting secondary school is a very exciting time but it can also be a little daunting for you as you transfer from a relatively small school to a larger one.
We also realise at the moment that you and your parents may be a little anxious as schools have been closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
We would normally be welcoming you and your parents into the college to meet your form teacher and to introduce you to life at Nendrum College. Please don’t worry though. We are here to fully support your transition journey. We will do everything we can to make your transition to Nendrum College a safe, smooth and special experience.
Many families have a lot of the same questions and concerns surrounding ‘Big School’ and we are committed to working with you to help address these issues. All the key information you need has been sent out to your parents/guardians. They can also access our website, Twitter or the Facebook PTA page if they would like further information.
We also have a number of fun activities lined up for you in the future to help prepare you for the big move.
Making the move from primary to secondary education is an exciting and important part of your education and we want to ensure that the process is a happy and calm one.
We have been working with your primary schools to gain as much information about our new students as possible but we are unable to visit each feeder school as have done so in the past.
An induction programme will be scheduled for you at the beginning of the school year. We will keep your parents/guardians informed of how these induction events will work.
In the meantime, I would like to wish you a lovely summer. I look forward to seeing you very soon.
Head of Year 8
