Welcome to the class of 2027!

Last year, in the grip of the pandemic, we were one of only two schools in Stockport who managed to put on a Year 6/7 transition day. It was great at the time, although not all primary schools could attend and so we weren’t able to meet every member of the new year group. Today was the official transition day for the class of 2027 and it went brilliantly. 99.7% of the new cohort spent their day with us today, meeting their new form mates and taking part in a series of lessons to show them what a typical day looks like at our school. I was lucky enough to teach one class for history and was really impressed with the work that they have done in their primary schools, and the confident and articulate way that they spoke.

It was also really nice to be able to speak to parents and carers in person for the first time since 2019! The information evening is always a busy affair and so we have all the information you need available online if you’d like to go over anything again.

Not only did we welcome the new Year 7 intake this week, but we were also able to welcome Year 5 students for our science challenge on Tuesday and Wednesday, and a whole load of Year 1 and 2 students for a morning of sport on Tuesday as well. It’s brilliant to be able to open our doors again to local schools and see youngsters enjoying the facilities. It’s also really good to see the care and consideration shown for all these visitors by our existing students. I’m not entirely sure I had the same experience back in my day, but the conduct of our existing students made me very proud too.

Have a lovely sunny weekend,

Joe Barker
