Ms Johnson - Head of Lower School

Dear Year Six,Ms Johnson

I am so pleased you will be joining us in September. We have been thinking about you a lot during these recent weeks, and we cannot wait to welcome you to Graveney.

My name is Ms Johnson and I am Head of Lower School. This means I am responsible for looking after all the students in Year 7-9.

I don't do this on my own of course! We have a big team to Tutors, Heads of Years and Deputies who all work together, alongside other key staff and will be introducing you to some of the key people over the next few weeks.

We know that starting Secondary School can be a scary time and that it might be more daunting for you this year. I can reassure you that our students ALWAYS tell us that it was much easier than they expected! We know the things you will be worrying about the most and will use this section of our website to address these common concerns to make sure you all feel ready to join us.

Sending you and your families my very best wishes,

Ms Johnson

You will each attend and induction day, where you will be able to meet lots of other pupils who will be joining Year 7 and you will take part in a big range of activities. You will also come to school for a welcome meeting which will give you an opportunity to have a conversation with a member of staff and ask any specific questions.
