Year 6 Induction Days
‘Thank you’ and ‘Well done’ to all of the Year 6 students, who are joining us in September, as our new Year 7s. It has been fantastic having you as part of community for your Induction days.
This year we were able to have all of our students, join us for the Induction days, in person! Just like previous years, the students arrived in their primary school uniform, which always provides a wonderful sea of colour. The Year 6s sampled a ‘typical day’ at St Laurence, in their Learning Groups, and set a very good first impression to our staff & school community. We had a range of lessons being taught, such as, PE, Art, Science, MFL and Geography as well as tours of the school led by our sixth form helpers for the day.
Many students left having made new friends and looking forward to September.
We also had a fantastic turn out of parents/carers for the Year 6 Information evening. This evening provided another valuable opportunity, to view uniform, hear from key members of senior staff and meet the House team.
Thank you for supporting our 3-way partnership, and being a significant part of a smooth and successful transition.
I wish you all a happy summer break and I look forward to seeing the Year 7 students again, in Trinity Hall, on Monday 5th September.

Awesome Audible – FREE books!
Fact: Reading for 20 minutes a day can improve your overall grades by 2 (GCSE grading) in most subjects! Reading widens vocabulary and improves grammar and spelling, this means smarter writing and essay responses!
Don’t like reading?…..Research has also shown that listening to books is just as useful as reading them in the traditional way – Hurrah!
Challenge – pick an audible book and when you’ve finished it, write a review that I can add, for others to read, on our webpage!
