Welcome to New Students at Leventhorpe

So you're coming to Leventhorpe for the first time!  It is going to be a big change.  There will be new challenges, lots of new faces and a far larger school for you to find your way around.  We know that it will be a big change for you and we look forward to meeting you.  You might be a little nervous but don’t worry - we know that you will have a really happy time here.

At Leventhorpe you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of subjects and activities. Sports, music, dance, art, drama and school trips and visits are just some of the opportunities and experiences that are waiting for you here.

Leaving your primary school and moving to the new, much bigger world of secondary education can feel
a little worrying.  Our aim is to make all of our new students feel welcome and safe so that you hit the
ground running at the start of Year 7 and make a great start to what will hopefully be some of the best years of your life.

If you are joining us from your primary school there is a special New Intake Day when you can visit the school, meet all the other new students, make new friends and try out some lessons!  There is also a New Intake Evening for you and your parents when you can come to learn about Leventhorpe, spend some time with members of staff and ask questions.

If you are the only student joining from your primary school there is no need to worry.  You are extremely important to us and you will also be given an extra opportunity to visit us on our small primaries day when you will get to meet other students who are also the only ones joining Leventhorpe from their primary schools.

We hope you find the information in this section of the website useful and we look forward to seeing you
in September!
