My first day at Sandringham School was really good. I was a bit nervous at first but I was excited as well. But at the end of the school day I really wanted to start straight away! My favourite thing was going to different classes because it was a new experience and more exciting than primary school. Lunch was very good, the food was good and I cannot wait until we get to do our finger prints on the first day in September. I have seen lots of new faces and I am already making new friends and all the teachers seem really nice. I am really looking forward to coming back in September.
Today I had a brilliant day! I loved all the fun activities that we got to participate in. I made loads of lovely, kind new friends and the food was yummy. I was really nervous when I first got here but now I’m fine. I loved the street dance we did at lunchtime. I’m so excited to start Sandringham soon!
Before I came into school I was both excited and nervous but when I came into the classroom and my tutor, Miss Randall, started to talk in a friendly way, I felt less nervous. At lunchtime I went to a Drama club where we had to do a slow motion race and later on some stage fighting. I absolutely loved the day. I made some new friends, learned new things and watched a new clip in English. Overall, the day went fabulously.

7B – Mr Peters
It has been lovely to meet next year’s 7B today, and I am confident they are going to be a smashing tutor group! They have already bonded as a team, with their ‘Brunel’ war-cry, and their initial nerves have been replaced with genuine excitement. We are going to have a delightful five years together; I’m very much looking forward to greeting them in September as they take the big step to infinity and beyond!
7D – Miss Randall
Walking into my brand new form was an exciting experience. The students were so enthusiastic, and some of their favourite parts of the day were the lunchtime activities. These ranged from Hip Hop dance club, to feeding a snake down in science. The students were all motivated in tutor group activities, and a game of ‘who has?’ ensured everyone got to know each other. We all agreed that as a form we were going to win all House events! The other motto we have is that the form is like a family, and we need to respect and look out for one another. Every student in 7D wrote down a worry on a piece of paper that they had about starting secondary and placed this in a box. When asking 7D at the end of the day if this anxiety was still there, all students shook their heads and agreed that it had all faded away. On a personal note I am delighted with my new tutor group, and look forward to seeing them all in September.
7E – Mr Cracknell
Induction day was a great opportunity to meet 7E and see how excited they are to be entering a new chapter in their education. Not only was it a chance for me to welcome 30 new faces to the school and learn new names but it also allowed members of the tutor group to make new friends and settle in. The class is a diverse group of students with many talents that will flourish, as well as new skills and passions that will be found through Sandringham School. Everyone, including myself, is eagerly anticipating the prospects that await next year and I cannot wait until September to start our journey.
7K – Mr Messios
I was incredibly excited to meet the brand new 7K and they certainly did not disappoint! The class is full of characters – funny, polite and smart. I’m very much looking forward to developing a strong bond with each of them, guiding them through the transition from year 6 to 7 and watching them succeed in ways they have not considered yet!
7S – Miss Stothard
7S were fantastic on Induction Day and I am already very proud to be their tutor. I was so pleased to see them all making new friends and getting involved in tutor group activities throughout the day. It was clear that they are excited about starting in September and looking forward to the new challenges and experiences this will bring.
7V – Mr Leat
The soon-to-be Year 7 have made an excellent start to their time at Sandringham! The students within 7V have already impressed me with their maturity, enthusiasm and commitment; the form group embraced the many challenges of the induction day with an incredibly positive attitude and have demonstrated a real appetite for new experiences and opportunities. Furthermore, the form have already begun to develop a strong team ethic, which will be essential to the success of the form as they embark on this exciting new chapter of their lives. I am sure that their willingness to participate and put in maximum effort, both in academic and extra-curricular activities, will continue throughout their time at Sandringham School, and I thoroughly look forward to starting the new school year together in September.
