St John's C of E Middle School Academy

Welcome to Year 7

 

Year 7 marks the start of Key Stage 3 for our students. In a two –tier system they would have changed schools and moved from a Primary School to a High School, so here at St John’s the transition is very smooth and the children will only notice minor changes. When pupils enter a Key Stage 3 they will begin the process of preparing for high school in 2 years time. Due to the close relationship we have with the local high schools, subject teachers will start to introduce pupils to GCSE style questions in readiness for when pupils move on from St John’s.

 

Mr Kenny Hirst
Head of Year 7 

 

The overall aim for myself and the dedicated team of experienced form tutors is to support the pupils as they continue their educational journey and ensure that they continue to enjoy learning at St Johns.  Pupils are encouraged to join one or more of our many extra curricular clubs either continuing their successes from Key Stage 2 or discovering something new.  The Year 7 team will strive to ensure that all our young learners are performing to the best of their ability by closely monitoring, behaviour, punctuality and progress by liaising with subject teachers. As our students mature early on in Year 7, we look to reward this with various roles of responsibility including opportunities to become Student Mentors and also Young Leaders.

Year 7 is also when all staff begin to monitor the students to try and ensure that those who behave well and responsibly will get the opportunity to be nominated as Prefects, House Captains or even the prestigious Head boy and Head girl of St Johns in Year 8.
