Pre-Entry Assessments

Please note that if your child did not complete their pre-entry CAT4 assessment, they will complete it during school time within the first two weeks of September. 

1st Year Orientation Day

1st year Orientation takes place on Friday 25th August 2023 from 9:30am to 11:30am. Students should wear their school PE tracksuit as they will take part in some activities. They can bring a drink and a small snack. A copy and a pen are useful in case they need to write information down on the day. They will have the chance to meet their new classmates and have some fun getting to know their new school.
