Hello all our new Year 7 students.
My name is Mr Curtis and I am the Headteacher of St Julian’s School.
We are very much looking forward to you joining us at St Julian’s in September. I hope you are as excited as we are.
We are living in very strange times. I do hope that you and your families are well.
Many of you have not been in school since March and you have had to adapt to a new way of learning. I can imagine that you are missing your primary school - your friends, your teachers and other staff members. Fortunately, there will be an opportunity for you to return on June 29th and finish your time in Year 6.
Normally at this point in the year, you spend a few days at your new school to get to know some of your new teachers, classmates and familiarize yourself with the new surroundings. This process is called transition.
This year, however, transition is going to be different because we have to follow the new rules related to social distancing. However, we didn’t want you to miss out and we wanted to ensure you have a normal transition experience as possible despite the circumstances.
We have put together for you a dedicated transition page where you will find all the information you need to help you get to know our school.
As schools are now reopening from June 29th, we are also able to offer you a face-to-face session in small groups where you will have a tour of the school, meet your new form tutor, your Progress Leader, Mr King and myself.
In the meantime, take care of yourselves, stay safe and I look forward to meeting you soon.
Mr. D. Curtis
