Welcome to Sir John Lawes School.
We look forward to meeting you and we know that you will have a really happy time here.
At SJL you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of subjects and activities. Sports, music, dance, art, drama, movie making, robotics and astronomy are some of the opportunities and experiences that are waiting for you at SJL.
Leaving your primary school and moving to the new, much bigger world of secondary education can feel worrying and stressful. Our aim is to make all our new students feel welcome and safe so that you hit the ground running at the start of Year 7 and make a great start to what will hopefully be some of the best years of your life.
If you are joining us from your primary school there is a special Induction Day when you can visit the school, meet all the new joiners, make new friends and try out some lessons! There is also an Induction Evening for parents when they can come to learn about Sir John Lawes, spend some time with members of staff and ask questions.
If you are the only student joining from your primary school there is no need to worry. You are extremely important to us and you will also be given an extra opportunity to visit us on single joiners' day when you will get the opportunity to meet other students who are also the only ones joining from their schools.
