At GA we want to believe that your child is entitled to the best start to their secondary school career. Once you have applied to the school and your child has been allocated a place, we will invite them to attend two days in the Summer holidays.
We really encourage them to come, Day 1 will be a day enriched with sport. Last year we had sessions from Gloucester Cricket and Rugby. This year we will be hosting Forest Green Rovers, which will give are newcomers to the school a rich and varied day of sport. The day is free and will include refreshments and lunch.
Day 2 is spent in school, with mini lessons to allow children to understand our expectations and routines as well as a chance to explore the school before their first day. They will have a school lunch provided and at the end of the day, we will celebrate their achievements in our lecture theatre. Last year was a great success and we can't wait to meet our new year 7 students.
