The time has come for us to find out about your friendship group. Who do you want to be in your Form with you? The attached survey will help us to match students with the peers they are familiar with. We can never guarantee first choices for lots of reasons, however we will always try out hardest to ensure students are placed with some people they know and are comfortable with (and it's very rare we don't succeed at this). 

 

Please use the attached survey link to provide us with this information. https://kwiksurveys.com/s/yasGKsMI

 

As there is a lot of logistical planning involved with matching groups together, please could we ask for this information by no later than Monday 22nd June so we have time to give the matching process the attention and careful scrutiny it deserves, and we have time to let students know which form they will be in before the Summer.

Transition Introduction Video

Transition 2020

Starting any new school can always be a worrying time for some families. At Newman we offer a full support package for our new students. Ordinarily, students would be invited in to school for an induction day. We would normally hold additional days as well so that students can have additional access opportunities.  

The transition programme for 2020 has changed due to the ongoing national situation we find ourselves in.

Primary School Information Gathering

This year, we are already well under way with liaising with primary schools and finding out as much information as we can so as to help the Year 6 students transition into Year 7 and join our Newman family.

Additional information questionnaires

Throughout early June we will be sending out questionnaires to parents and students to find out even more – What are your interests? Who do you get along with? Who would you (ideally) like to be in a Form group with? Where might you need extra support (if at all)?

This information is invaluable and really helps us to get a bigger picture of you as a young person.

Welcome Presentation

Towards the end of June (Date tbc) we will be broadcasting a presentation evening so that we can deliver all of the day-to-day running information about the school. You can find out about uniform, school dinners and all of the small pieces of information that ‘put you in the know’ about how our school works.

A Term of Transition

Every school day from now until the end of term on this page, we will update a video introducing you to a different member of staff who will give you information about a small aspect of school life, and they will set you a home learning task.

Contact Us
