Year 7 Transition

Welcome

A warm welcome to all of our new Year 7 students, we are really looking forward to you becoming part of our school. The transition to secondary school is an exciting time, with so many new challenges and opportunities. My role as your Head of Year, alongside your form tutor, is to support you on this journey, develop your academic and personal skills and offer you the chance to flourish. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Mrs Clare Strong

Head of Year 7

Year 7 Handbook

The Year 7 Handbook will provide you with an overview of the day-to-day running of the school and guide you to where you can find more information on our website. Please go through the information contained in the handbook with your child prior to them starting at Camp Hill.

 

Google Classroom

As a Google School we are keen to introduce Google Classroom to your child so that they can begin to use some of its features and explore the way in which we support learning via our remote platform.

On Wednesday 7th July you will receive an email (from the admissions email) containing:

  • Your child's school Gmail email address
  • Your child's password for their email address
  • Your child's House
  • Your child's Form

Your child can expect to receive an email on Wednesday 14th July (sent to their new school email address) with instructions on how to join the Google Classroom. They can then begin some of their online learning at Camp Hill through a series of small tasks set over the summer.

 

Summer School

We are looking forward to welcoming almost all of you to our Summer School during the week beginning Monday 9th August. We have an exciting programme of activities planned, including opportunities to learn, to reflect, to create and to get moving!

There are lots of details coming soon: parents should watch their emails very carefully.
