As you embark on your exciting new learning journey, you are bound to have lots of questions.
This link will have some general information you may need as you get ready for the changes next year.
Part of your transition will be identifying with and becoming part of a new school with new rules, routines and of course a new uniform. It is nice to start the new year with a new uniform and this year it will be even more special as you embark on an exciting new journey.
In your new school, you will travel round to different classes for your lessons but will have a tutor group – a bit like our classes at school. These are slightly different though as you will have students from all year groups in a tutor group.
Here is some information about how tutor groups work.
Like Stamshaw Junior School, Trafalgar has a system to reward positive behaviour and work. Any rewards or sanctions you receive can be seen by your parents on an APP called Insight that you will also be able to use.
Previous Stamshaw Junior students have said that the rewards at Trafalgar are great!
One of the big differences about secondary school is the range of different subjects you will learn, which will broaden your horizons.

If you start your time at Trafalgar and you think that there are things that you do not agree with, then why not put yourself forward to be a school councillor and use your voice to have an opinion and be the voice of your peers to hopefully bring about change.

Extra Curricular Clubs
As well as different subjects, Trafalgar will offer you a wide range of clubs that you can take part in after school and during lunchtimes.
One concern you may have is bullying as you transition to your new school – DON’T BELIEVE THE ROUMOURS! As with our school, there is a strict no bullying rule and there are plans in place should anyone ignore this rule.

The budding writers among you may wish to get involved with the school magazine or maybe you would just like to read what sort of activities happen at Trafalgar School.
Timetable and Student Planner
Your weeks will look different at Trafalgar School as you will have a timetable that spreads over two weeks so that there is enough time for all subjects to be taught. These will be in your planner along with other important information about homework etc.
It will be your responsibility to ensure you organise your time effectively to get all homework complete on time; the key words here are independence and responsibility.
Below you will see an example of a timetable from a student at Trafalgar and what the planners will look like. This pupil has highlighted her timetable to make it easier for her to follow.
