The last day of school this year is Wednesday 14th Dec.

The start date for 2017 is Tuesday 31st January.

The first day back after a break from school can be both exciting and sometimes a little over whelming for students.

We have found that the transition back to school works better if students are part of processes such as; introductions and getting familiar with new teachers/students/work spaces, understanding of new expectations, timetables and routines, as well as settling back in with friends.

This can be the case for the start of a new year, term, week, or even a day, as many students find it difficult to 'catch up' and find their place after everyone else has settled in.

When possible please book holiday travels outside of school term times.
