As Head of Year it gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to your first year as part of the ‘Coopers’ Coborn’ family.
Year 7 is such an important year as it marks the transition from Key Stage 2 (primary school) to Key Stage 3 (secondary school).
During this first year, we want students to become fully immersed in our school culture and in particular our three pillars of academic excellence, extra-curricular enrichment and ‘Love as Brethren’.
At the start of the year, students will learn how to successfully navigate a community of over 1700 people and in particular the challenge of learning over 11 different subjects each week. The Autumn Term has the all-important ‘Bowles Trip’ when we take all of year 7 away for a fun residential week of adventure, team-building and learning. We also have a range of other important school events in the year such as Founders’ Day.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you have any further questions about Year 7.
Mr J Eccles
Head of Year 7
