Year 6 Students

Hello Year 6!

I want to welcome you to the AGGS community – we are really looking forward to meeting you all in September! We have put together this webpage to share some resources that we thought might be useful for you in getting ready for Year 7.

AGGS is a really welcoming, friendly school and you can always rely on the older students, teachers and other members of staff to help you out if you have any questions or worries.

I have recorded a video message in which I try to answer some of your most common questions about starting at AGGS which you can view by clicking on the below link.

Please also take a look at the following two documents – one is a booklet with lots of information which will tell you more about what to expect at AGGS, and the other is a list of equipment that you will need for your lessons in September

Our current Year 7 students have written you a few letters which you can read by clicking the link below – they offer some really good advice and tips.

Year 7 letters

We have also put together a Frequently Asked Questions page – again, our Year 7 students have tried to answer the questions that they wish they’d known the answer to before starting at AGGS.

FAQs page

We know that many of you have been spending longer at home than normal, and are probably itching to get back to work! We feel the same and have provided some information about some of the subjects at AGGS, and even suggested some summer holiday activities that you could do if you found you had the time.

Subject information and summer holiday activities

And finally, we know there is no substitute for actually visiting AGGS, but until we can allow you back through our doors, we have put together a virtual video tour showing you many of the different learning areas which will be available to you all very soon!

If you have any further questions, please ask your parents, carers or Y6 teachers to get in touch with me, and I’ll do my best to help you out!

Take care,

Mr Lovelady
