Year 7 Alternative Prospectus
As you know, we’re working hard to give you the best remote transition experience we can during these strange times. Many of you will have lots of questions about the lessons and clubs we offer at Becky High, so to help answer some of these, we wanted to share our Alternative Prospectus, written by our current Year 7 students for our incoming Year 7 students. It gives you some information on the kind of things you can expect from lessons and clubs, and I’m sure it will make you even more excited about joining us in September. We hope you enjoy it!
Mrs Ross' Films
Reading the Alternative Prospectus may have started you thinking about what life will be like at Becky High. I know there are often several issues which may be of particular concern to our new students, namely making friends, getting lost, and coping with homework. These are very common and normal worries, so I have put together five short videos on these topics which I hope you will find helpful. I would ask parents and students to please watch the video on our mobile phone and social media policy and guidelines, as it is extremely important that everyone in our school community is aware of our position on these matters. - Mrs Ross.
Supporting your child's transition
Due to the cancellation of our usual fitting days and the impact of COVID19, it is important that you purchase school uniform using Sportcrest’s Click and Collect service. Items must be ordered in advance before the collection date allocated at the school (see first document below for your collection time). Orders need to be placed directly with Sportcrest on 01494 534741 or via their website. Please read the documents below for information on how to do this and for your specific collection time on SATURDAY 18TH JULY.
Summer Reading List
Connecting with your Forms
The Friends of BHS (FoBHS) use an app called Classlist and providing you gave permission when you filled in the Enrolment Pack, you will be sent an invitation to join the evening of the 7th of July. Once you have joined, you will be able to connect with the other parents in your Form, decide on Form Parent Reps and hopefully, arrange some virtual meet-ups between your child and her form.
More information about the Friends of BHS (our PTA) can be found here.
Lessons are 30 minutes, once a week during term-time led by our wonderful team of peripatetic teachers. We offer music lessons in piano, guitar, voice, flute, clarinet, viola, violin, percussion, trumpet, trombone, tuba or French horn.
If your child would like to take part in music lessons when she joins us please email email@example.com asap.
