Edgbarrow School

Upcoming Year 7

Year 6 Induction

We make every effort to ensure that each child has the opportunity to spend time at Edgbarrow School to become familiar with the school layout and to meet some staff before joining us in September. 

During the visit, students will meet their tutor group and be involved in a varied programme including sampling lessons and team-building activities. Students should arrive at school at an earlier time of 8.40am and meet in the School Hall on both days. We have arranged for Edgbarrow student guides to be posted around the school to show them where to go.

There will be a range of complimentary hot/cold food and drinks available for break and lunchtime. Due to the Biometric cashless catering system, students will not need to bring any money. Alternatively, they may bring a packed lunch. If your child has any special dietary requirements or you have any other concerns regarding this, please contact us.

The day will finish at 3.20pm (normal school time) and students may be collected from the main Reception entrance. Please can we encourage, where possible, students to arrive and be collected on foot to reduce traffic on our school site.

In addition, we will be running our Meet the Tutor session. This is an opportunity for students to come into school and meet their tutor and tutor group. There will also be an opportunity for parents to buy second-hand uniforms from the PTA during this time.

There will also be an online parents’ meeting covering various aspects of Edgbarrow life and answering any questions you might have. See dates and timings below.

A sandwich lunch will be provided by our school caterer, Culinera. Alternatively, your child may bring a packed lunch; either way please can you complete this form to help Culinera prepare for numbers and dietary requirements by Thursday 27th June at the latest.
