Advice and Support for New Students

Problems & Worries
Everyone occasionally has a problem or worry at school. This may be arguments with friends or difficulties with work. When you have a problem you can speak to your form tutor, talk to your Head of House or an older South Wirral student.

“I was worried because I came only with only one friend, but now I have lots!” Katie Manning (South Wirral student)

Studying lots of subjects
You may have twelve different subjects, taught by different teachers, in different classrooms! You will be doing some subjects you have never done before and using equipment you’ve never used before, but our supportive staff will help you every step of the way. You will be given a timetable to tell you what time each lesson is, where it is, and who will be teaching you. If you lose your timetable, go to the main office and ask for another.

Behaviour & Discipline
Teachers at South Wirral are fair and will help you achieve the best you can. You are expected to be well behaved at all times, and will be rewarded with a House Points System, which applies to every subject. If you misbehave, your parents or carers will be notified of any actions taken.
