Year 7 Journey And Key Dates 2021-22
We wanted to write to you at the end of this first half term to give you some key messages and information as your child embarks on this new academic year.
We hope that by the time this reaches you, your child has settled in well to life at Princethorpe College. It is likely that by now, they know their way around the campus, have played their first sports fixture, and have been through the full two-week timetable a couple of times. The first few weeks at any new school can be a daunting time but we have been enormously impressed with the way in which they have embraced school life and supported each other as the term has progressed.
Year 7 is an exciting time on the academic front. It is a time for pupils to explore and express themselves in and out of the classroom. It is a time to develop their passions and understanding to help begin to lay the foundations for the academic adventure ahead.
Whilst we hope for a more stable year than the last two, please rest assured that no matter how the national covid picture evolves we will ensure that the Year 7s are very well cared for and fully supported in their learning.
We thought it would be helpful for you to see some of the key events ahead at this stage so you can note them in your diaries and get a sense of how the bigger picture is likely to unfold. Please find attached here a table guide to the key events.
We hope you find this information useful and thank you in advance for your support for the year ahead.
