Principal’s Blog 6th July 2018, Year 6 into 7 – Transition Day!

On Monday 2nd July we welcomed 240 amazing Year 6 students who will be joining us in September.  They came from over 30 different primary schools to take part in our Transition Day.

The students were able to take part in an array of exciting activities throughout the day which included creating key rings in Design Technology and using Bunsen burners in Science. The day ended with a musical master class from our very talented year 9 students.

It was fabulous to see how quickly the students got to know each other and made new friends. Their new form tutors and all the teachers involved said what a pleasure it was to take them for the range of subjects experienced.

At the end of the day we asked the students to fill in their Hazeley Highlight of the day and below is a snapshot of the great feedback we had:

“My favourite thing at Hazeley has been being creative and making new friends. I am so excited to attend Hazeley in September.”

 “I enjoyed  being able to meet new people and the Science lesson because we got to use a Bunsen Burner with Mrs Kennedy”.

 “My favourite thing today has been Art because I love painting and seeing all of the different colours and relaxing doing it!”

 Following this exciting and fun packed day we then hosted our Transition Evening. Form tutors and staff members welcomed the parents and carers of our new intake and discussed the exciting opportunities that Hazeley offers and how we are looking forward to helping all our new students to be the best they can be. The feedback on the evening was overwhelmingly positive from all involved.

I would like to personally thank all of the staff and current Hazeley students  involved in such a successful day and I look forward to the start of a great new academic year in September 2018.
