We are happy to welcome new pupils at any time during the school year, providing that we have a space in the appropriate year group. We understand that it can be daunting for both parents and pupils when beginning a new school, but please don't worry. We have systems and procedures in place which make it very easy for all concerned. Usually new pupils attend school for a few taster days prior to their start date, but all children and reasons for moving schools are different. We can 'tailor-make' a starter package for any situation - whether it's transferring from a local school in town or moving from another country to the UK for the first time.
Our staff and pupils are very welcoming and we are experts at successfully settling new pupils (and their families) into school. After a few weeks, the 'new child' cannot be distinguished from the others and will have already been invited for tea at other children's homes. Other families in school extend a welcoming hand and parents soon find themselves part of the St George's big family network.
The link below is a booklet given to all pupils at the start of the year and to new pupils when they arrive - it helps to tackle any apprehension about starting a new school as it answers many of those important questions a new child may have.
