Feedback from our current Year 7 students

We take pride in our secondary transition provision and value the feedback received from our students. Last year our new Year 7 students’ had a really positive start and have spoken positively about the school’s RISE programme and about the care and support they received, both in school and through remote education. Ultimately, this has resulted in a high proportion of students agreeing they would recommend The William Allitt School to their Primary School.

Here is a selection of comments made by some of our students about their experiences to date:

  • “it’s a good school”
  • “it’s easy to settle in”
  • “it’s fun”
  • “teachers are really nice and friendly; they help you if you’re stuck”
  • “it’s welcoming”
  • “we get to do activities such as PE, Woodwork, Textiles, Food Technology, Art, Science”
  • “you get a free laptop to help with your learning”
  • “we were able to choose a couple of friends that we knew so we could be in the same tutor group together”
