Hello Year 6. It is hard to believe that your journey in Cobbs Brow is coming to end and you are about to start your next stage of education in high school. I know some of you are feeling worried about high school and sad to leave Cobbs Brow. These feelings are natural and we felt the same when we were your age. However, just like Cobbs Brow, the teachers and staff at your new school will look after you and help and support you when you need it.
Please read the information below and follow the links to your high school. This information will help you to familiarise yourself with your new school and hopefully answer some of the many questions you will have.
Moving to high school is both a worrying and exciting time. It is different but you get used to it very quickly. You’ve got to learn your timetable, your teacher’s name, children from other school’s names and know where your classrooms are for different lessons. And, this is all before you begin to do your new learning. It can seem like a lot to take in. But, there are so many people that can help you and I want to give you a little advice…
- Speak to adults at home about how you are feeling
- Speak to your friends about what they are thinking
- Think about ways that you can make new friends
- Explore the high school websites
- Drop me an email to ask me any questions you might have
And, the best piece of advice I could give is to try and speak to older children about going to high school. This may be older brothers, sisters, cousins, neighbours or older friends.
Finally… YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR HEAD FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET!
In the 15 years that I have said goodbye to Cobbs Brow Year 6s, never has any one of them ever come back to me and said that this has ever happened. IT’S A MYTH!
