Year 7

As part of the transition process from Year 6, our Year 7 students undertake a Settling in period that helps them achieve the high expectations of an Irlam & Cadishead student. During this period there is a ‘Settling in Evening’ where parents and carers are invited to meet the Year 7 Team.

Also as part of the Settling in period the Year 7 students that need support are identified and take part in our ‘Peer Mentoring’ scheme with students from older year groups.
