Finding Out About Your High School

Challenge: Go on the website for your new high school (see links below). What interesting information can you find out? Create a poster or a mindmap to present all your findings - what are you most looking forward to!?

Things you could find out - 

  • Where exactly is it - address, distance from your home, walking or bus routes to get there?
  • How many people go to your school? How many people will be in year 7?
  • What time does school start, finish, break times and lunchtimes? Can you create a timetable?
  • What sports and before/after school clubs do they run? What are going to try out?
  • What can you get for dinner - can you find a menu? How much does it cost?
  • How do you pay for your dinner at high school?
  • How do you apply for a bus pass? 
  • What trips do they go on in year 7?
  • How does their sportsday work? 
  • What attendance rewards do they have?
  • Do they have a house or team system?
  • How do they reward and track good behaviour? What sanctions do they have for negative behaviours? 

 

We would love to see any completed posters or mindmaps - please do email them to us! It would really help other going to your school if we could share your fab research online!

 

 

We've had some fab examples already...
