Yr7 Transition Information
Welcome to Smestow!
We know that as brilliant students you are looking forward to moving from your primary school into our family at Smestow. We cannot wait for you to arrive and we have lots of exciting new things for you to experience.
Its really important to us that we help you to settle in quickly at school and continue with your learning, as well as being happy and safe. We know that the last two years have been really strange and we hope that next year will be different. We are planning to be a normal as possible.
We have done a lot of work at the end of the year to replace computers and renew wifi. Over the Summer we are rebuilding the schools student toilets and we are placing new teaching screens in every classroom.
We have all your teachers ready and we have no posts that we need to fill. They are working hard to prepare brilliant lessons for you. We are also introducing a new enrichment programme which will give you a range of things to do beyond the normal school day, including music, art and sport.
As an Academy we are focussed on Building People, in order for you to become a successful adult. We will always focus on our 5 core values of respect, resilience, honesty, integrity and accountability. We want you to work hard to make your dreams come true and go on to have a brilliant life!
We also know that some of you will be worried about the move to a bigger school but we know that almost all of these worries we can answer, if you tell us. Make sure that you contact us and ask at any time, we are used to having loads of questions.
Don’t forget we do have a Summer School running and if you are interested and haven’t yet let us know please contact us. Also please ensure you have ordered your uniform through us, remember we are paying for some of it!
I look forward to meeting you when you arrive in September, enjoy your holiday!
