New school, new friends!

Hopefully, you now know which school you’re going to. If it wasn’t your first choice, then see the article below, labelled “Didn’t get your first choice?”

Leavers Trip

You might have already had it, but most schools have a Leavers Trip. It could be anywhere, but I’m guessing you’ll be staying over there!

New school, new friends!

Hopefully, you now know which school you’re going to. If it wasn’t your first choice, then see the article below, labelled “Didn’t get your first choice?”

Didn’t get your first choice?

Thousands of 11-year-olds across the United Kingdom don’t get their first choice school. You can appeal to get a place in that school, but only a third of appeals are successful. But there is a chance!

Saying goodbye

It’s hard saying goodbye to what you’ve known for seven odd years. But, as of April 23rd, you have got one more term left at your school, so make the most of it.

SATS

SATS happen at the end of every key-stage (you might remember having one at the end of Year 2!) Do revise for this test as it will play a big role on what sets you’ll be in for secondary school.
Friends
Friends may be an important part of your life, and moving up to secondary school might mean that you have to say goodbye to those friends. But, secondary school is a fresh new start and a time to make new friends. But that doesn’t mean you can’t keep in touch with the old ones. You’ve got just over half a term left to get their contact details so you can contact them in future
