Looking forward to senior school
Our girls in 7 Junior are certainly thinking ahead now, as they have only a term and a half left of their junior school days. With this in mind, we held an information evening recently for their parents in order to share with them exactly what their daughters may expect when they move into senior school in August. Making the transition into I Senior can be an uncertain time for parents as well as for girls but we trust they will feel reassured that the curriculum and experiences currently enjoyed by our 7 Junior pupils are already paving the way for the smoothest possible start to their journey into secondary education.
Parents were able to meet key members of the senior leadership, guidance and support for learning teams and to hear about the undoubted benefits of being taught in a single-sex environment in small classes where every individual is well-known and allowed to flourish.
The structured programme of transition, from the Induction day in the summer term to the first day of life In I Senior, was described in some detail; an overview of the I Senior curriculum gave parents a glimpse of the exciting opportunities - both within and outwith the classroom - that await their daughter in the next stage of her education; and our commitment to involving parents in this process and working in partnership with them throughout the girls' time in senior school was firmly underlined.
We look forward to renewing this partnership again in August at our dedicated Welcome Evening for all I Senior parents.
