Welcome to Year 7
Welcome to Year 7, the first year of our expanding secondary school here at Gulf British Academy. The Year 7 curriculum offers a balanced education based on the programme laid down in our primary school. It is the time when pupils develop new skills and ways of thinking to prepare them for IGCSE’s at the end of Year 11 and beyond into A-levels at the end of Year 13.
Year 7 marks a period of progression and development, physically, socially, pastorally and academically. Year 7 in particular is a time of transition where your child will learn to be more independent, more organised and more resourceful as they face the challenges of moving from primary to secondary school.
The Year 7 team are looking for our pupils to grow into young people who feel safe, supported and valued. Pupils who take responsibility for their actions and always strive to do better. In many aspects of school life, children will be motivated in doing the best they can whilst embracing challenges and demonstrating curiosity. All pupils should appreciate the world around them and seek to make a positive contribution to their communities.
All those who join Year 7 are part of a very special community at GBA, which will continue to grow and be successful throughout the journey to a 3-18 school.
