Starting Year 7

Welcome from the Head of Year 7
In this section

We hope you are looking forward to starting Year 7, but don't worry if you are feeling a little bit nervous, it's completely normal. There is lots of information in this section to help you get to know us a bit better before you start, including advice from Year 7 pupils who've already been where you are now.

Welcome from the Head of Year 7

Although you still have some time left in Year 6, I expect that your thoughts are starting to turn towards September when you will join Year 7.

It may be that you already know a great deal about the School, but don't worry if you don't – every year we are joined by children from thirty to forty different primary schools and we shall be able to teach you everything you need to know about making a success of your time here.

It is quite normal for many of our Year 7 pupils to know nobody when they first arrive. I am glad to say that is is also quite normal for pupils to make many new friends in a matter of weeks. It sometimes takes a bit of courage and a certain effort, but it will happen. BGS is a friendly place and you will find plenty of people to help you out if you need it.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and watching you progress during your first year at the School. I hope that you will join Year 7 with confidence and ambition, determined to make the most of the exciting new opportunities that will come your way.

Good luck!

Mr Watkins
Head of Year 7
