Year 7 Settling in Well - Here's What They Say

Cooler and shorter days mean the beginning of a new year at Harris Girls' Academy East Dulwich. We asked five of our new Year 7 students to share their experiences of their first week with us.

Bonnie says...

"I’ve made lots of new friends already. The teachers have been very good at helping us find our way around the school. It’s very different to primary school because when you get out of your class you have to find your way around school by yourself rather than have a teacher come with you. Even though I knew it would be different I was expecting it to be fun too, and so far it’s been just what I expected."


Ange and Natasha say...

Ange (left): "It’s quite scary walking through the building on your first day but I had the courage to do it, even though I was a bit scared. I was expecting that it would be fun and that the teachers would help me if I had a problem and so far I was right. When I put on my school uniform in the morning I felt like a grown up! My favourite class so far has been Geography. I didn’t know that I would be good at that subject but after the first class I feel like I might be good at it."

Natasha (right): "So far everyone has been really nice, the teachers and other students have been really kind and it’s much better than I expected. When I put my new uniform on I felt really excited knowing I was going to be going to a new school and meeting new people. I’m really happy to be in secondary school."


Kaylee and Zainab say...

Kaylee (left): "At first when you come in it felt really scary because the buildings are really big but then you start to get used to it and learn where different places are. My favourite class so far has been History because my teacher made the lesson fun and makes it really interesting to learn about. Secondary school is more challenging than primary and I’ve got to meet lots of new people. Everyone has been really friendly especially the older students."

Zainab (right): "At first I was nervous because I wasn’t really sure where each class was, but the older students have been really helpful in showing me around. I’m really looking forward to my Science classes because that was my favourite subject in primary school, but this will be different because you have different teachers for different subjects and you’re treated like you’re older so you have more responsibilities."

Meet more of our Year 7 students and teachers at one of our open days in September and October.
