New Year 7 Entrants
I am delighted to welcome you and your son to our new Year 7 parents’ section of the School’s website and we are looking forward to your son joining Wescliff High School for Boys in September 2019. From this page you will be able to access a range of School documentation which we hope will assist you. This section also facilitates the completion of all the necessary joining details.
This is a most important point of transition in your son’s life and we wish to work closely with you to ensure that the process runs smoothly. Your son is about to embark on an exciting educational journey, which will offer him an array of new opportunities and challenges which will help to prepare him for the adult world. Whilst this will require his dedication, we feel sure he will experience a great deal of enjoyment along the way.
Beyond preparation for Higher Education and employment, your son’s time at WHSB will also encompass his development as a responsible and well-rounded individual. We place great emphasis on encouraging our pupils to give of their very best and to unlock their potential through a wide range of extra-curricular, as well as academic opportunities. We strongly encourage our pupils to immerse themselves fully in the life of our School community.
As a result of the refurbishment of our Science building, and our new Sixth Form Block, we have been able to reorganise the use of our School grounds during the break and lunchtimes. I am pleased to report that we now have a dedicated playground for our Year 7 pupils to the East side of the school. This arrangement is proving most successful and we are sure it will make for a smoother transition for your son next September.
We hope you will find this section of our website helpful, however please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Mumford, Second Deputy Head, if you have any questions regarding the documents or require any further advice.
I look forward to meeting you and your son and welcoming you into the WHSB community.
