There will be some differences between Primary and Secondary school when you first move up, however you shouldn’t worry too much about it; you’ll learn your way around quickly and it shouldn’t take long for you to get used how Chertsey High School works. There is a great team here to support you and if you are finding it hard come and speak to us and we will be able to help you.
If you lose something go to Reception where we will have a lost property box where stray items get handed in. Please make sure that you name all of your items (including uniform) as it is much easier for us to ensure anything you lose is returned to you.
We would not recommend ever forgetting your homework, however if you do then you could get a warning from your teacher the first time, or a detention after that. If you fail to do your homework because of family reasons or illness, come in with a signed note from your parent/carer explaining the situation.
It will not take a long time for you to find your way around, - especially as we will only be between 2 corridors for the first 2 years - but for the first few weeks you will be given a map and teachers will be very understanding if you are slightly late for your lessons. If you are lost around the school feel free to ask anyone in the corridors and they will be happy to help.
You encouraged not bringing a mobile phone or iPod to school. If you decide to do so it will be at your own risk! You are not allowed to have them out during lesson time unless a teacher has allowed it in a lesson. Mobile phone and iPods are not allowed to be used during break and lunchtime.
No, you will not have PE or Games on your first day.
You will be divided into either a Spanish or French class.
Over a week you can expect up to 6 pieces of homework a week.
Students will find out which House they are in on the Transition Day on Tuesday 4 July 2017.
Trainers are not part of the School uniform. If you are injured and need to wear trainers, you will be required to have a signed note from parents or carers in your planner.
Lessons are 60 minutes in length.
There are a huge range of clubs that Year 7 can join. Below is a list of some of the clubs we are considering:
• Sporting Clubs - football, rugby, basketball, badminton, cricket, athletics
The first few weeks you will be given a map and teachers will be very understanding if you are slightly late for your lessons. However, they will expect you to be on time after this, as you will know your way around. If you are late to a lesson, the teacher will put a late mark in the register and an accumulation of these will lead to a late detention; individual teachers may also give sanctions.
There will be a whole range of sports on offer at Chertsey High School for you to take part in. In the winter months there will be Football and Rugby, as well as Table Tennis, Basketball and Badminton in the sports hall. In the Spring and Summer terms we will change to Athletics, Cricket and Softball.
If you feel unwell during a lesson then you need to inform your classroom teacher, who will then give you permission to go to the medical room. This can be found at student reception. If you are unwell at break and lunch you should go straight to the medical room.
No - make sure you have a copy of your timetable at home and pack your bag the night before to make sure you have everything you need. Also, do your homework on the night it is set so you do not allow too much work to mount up.
