What to Expect at High School

Moving On Up

Making Friends
You won’t lose your old friends! You can see them at break and lunch, and although you may not be in the same House or Tutor Group, you may be in several lessons with them. ‘Moving on up’ into South Wirral is an excellent opportunity to meet and make hundreds of new friends. Everyone will be feeling the same way and our caring students will look after you.

School Kit
Ask your Head of House if you would like to hire a locker. You will need to be organised in year 7! As well as books, you will have to bring your PE kit, exercise books, pencil case and sometimes ingredients for Food Tech. You will receive a timetable and a planner. They will help keep you organised! Pack your bag the night before and be prepared!

Break and Lunchtime  
You can buy a broad range of delicious hot or cold food from our canteen during break and lunchtime, or bring in a packed lunch. During lunchime you can go anywhere but must stay on the school premises.

Breaktime   11am to 11.15am
Lunchtime  12.15pm to 1pm

Clubs and Activities
We have so many different clubs. Some are at lunch time and others after school, including many sports clubs for both boys and girls including basketball, trampolining, art, drama, music and dance clubs.  There are many performances you can take part in, and we have in-school sports clubs, attend performances and visit local galleries. Get involved, get a new hobby and make new friends! Click here for more information.

Home Learning
When you’re in year 7, you will have a fixed home learning timetable including Maths, English and Languages. You will have homework set that you can access via your Moodle account that you can log in to from home. If you struggle with anything, you can talk to your tutor or Head of House, and they’ll help support you. Don’t worry alone.
