To my year 7s to be,
I wanted to say hello and let you know I am looking forward to meeting you all. I know you may be feeling nervous about coming up to Quarrydale Academy and that is normal, so please do not worry. I was nervous too when I started the school as a teacher, but what I soon realised, is that we are a big family and we look after each other here.
Now at present, you will be aware that things have changed due to COVID19 and of course this has impacted your last months of your primary schooling and your transition to Quarrydale Academy. What I can say is that the transition team and I are working together to make sure everything is in place for you when you arrive. We are currently beginning to sort out your tutor groups, where we will try our best to make sure you have a friend with you. Your tutors are also excited to meet you too and will be ready to support you especially in your first few weeks.
In my role as your Head of Year, my priority is to give you the best experience at school that I can. I want to support you every step of the way and ensure that you achieve and progress as young individuals. I am here to help you build confidence and guide you to make the right choices in all aspects of our Quarrydale life.
See you soon and best wishes,
From your head of year- Miss Brown
We want to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and welcome you to Quarrydale Academy. As the ‘Transition Team’ we work with your primary teachers, gathering information to make your transition as easy and smooth for you as possible, supporting you throughout year 7.
Transition is very important to us and we realise that for many of you it will be a worrying time, but with the current situation in the country, our normal arrangements will understandably change. We will do our best to accommodate our new pupils to the best of our ability and be reassured that we will be here to support not only students but their parents and carers too.
We will be in touch as soon as possible with more help and advice but in the meantime please check our website regularly for general information and updates about the school.
Thank you for choosing us, we will strive to give all our students the best education possible.
We look forward to seeing you all soon.
