As in previous years, we are offering the opportunity for our new Year 7 students to join us for one week at the beginning of the summer holidays to experience a variety of exciting and challenging activities based in school. These events are designed to prepare and support them for transition from primary school to St Thomas More Catholic School.

We are keen to offer these experiences to those students soon to join us, as we firmly believe that the opportunity to engage with such activities will provide many pastoral and academic benefits, which in turn underpin a smooth and harmonious transfer to secondary school.

These three days will enable our new students to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings and make new friends. A number of our current students will be invited to support our new students, thus encouraging the building of new friendships in a more relaxed way. The programme is planned so that the students will encounter an action packed 3 days in school, full of exciting and stimulating workshop sessions, all of which explore this year’s theme: “St Thomas More needs YOU!”

We have endeavoured to include something to suit all of our new children. As such activities planned may include a selection of the following:

Drama, cookery, sport, literacy and a range of other exciting activities.
