Welcome and Enrolment for September 2020

Welcome to our new Year 7 students

A warm welcome to Prendergast School. We are delighted that you will be joining us in September 2020. We are looking forward to meeting you!

These are challenging times. Whilst schools have been closed, many of you have been completing home learning. Thank you for taking care with physical distancing and, as a result, helping to protect lives. We have been incredibly impressed by the generosity, compassion and kindness that has been shown by our community during these times.

Well done for everything you have done to stay safe and keep positive.

Because of the unique situation this year, most of our transition and enrolment activities are taking place online.

About us

Here is how you can find out more about us:

You can download the booklet or read it online to find out lots of helpful information about starting Prendergast School in September 2020.

Make sure you read our Headteacher's message!

About you

You will be able to tell us lots of information about yourself at your meeting with one of our Senior Leaders. We will also be talking to your primary schools. We will ask you to complete our online enrolment and induction form for some of the more detailed information.

  • Meeting with Senior Leadership – Individual meetings with a Senior Leader will take place later in June and we have already written to you about this. The meeting is for parents/carers together with the student.
  • Primary schools – As part of the transition, you can feel reassured that we will also be in contact with local primary schools to help support transition.

Enrolling with us

Our online enrolment and induction is where you can tell us all the details about yourselves and your family.

We have sent you a link by email to complete our online enrolment and induction form. This is so that we can make sure we have all your details correct when you join. For instance, this is where you can tell us if you like to use a preferred name and you should make sure we have all the contact and other information we need.

Please complete your online enrolment by the deadline we have given you in the email.

Working together

As part of our induction, you are asked to carefully read each of our agreements. You and your parents/carers are asked in your online enrolment to confirm you agree to these when you join the school and they will last for all the years you are enrolled with us. Make sure you and your parents/carers keep a copy. These are all included in our Welcome Handbook. You can also click on the links to read or download each separate agreement below:

We can't wait to hear all about you during the transition period and to welcoming you as a future member of our Prendergast community in September 2020. 

By working together, we look forward to sharing your successes and achievements over the next few years.
