New Year 7 2020

Welcome to this new section, created especially for the students and families joining us in 2020. 

As the weeks go on we will continue to add different resources that may help you prepare for the new academic year. Below you'll find a range of activities and media including our interactive Virtual Tour. 

We're really looking forward to seeing you in September!

Helpful Information

Videos & Virtual Tour

Usually, in the summer term, we'd welcome you to St Joan's to have a look around and start to get to grips with where everything is. As this has not been possible we've made a virtual tour especially for you! And to make it a bit more interesting, you get to choose the order in which you look around the school. Pay close attention as you're shown around as they may be some challenges that will test your 'powers of observation' like 'who is Miss Simon's favourite singer?'

You can start your tour below. Make sure you don't miss anything out!

Below the tour, we also have an Induction Presentation for parents in which we try to concisely capture the essence transitioning to life at St Joan's and try to answer some of the most frequently asked induction questions by parents. Coming soon will also be a video of staff and pupils answering questions out to us by our future Year 7s.







Weekly Challenge


These are designed to help us discover more about them, who they are as a person and what they like about school learning. 

If these can all be kept in a folder, we will ask to look at these when we meet.
