Starting a new school can be exciting and daunting for both students and parents. We want to welcome you as a new member of our community here at AGS.
From September 2021, your son’s Head of Year will be Mrs Blunt. Contact details are below, with a list of our Year 7 Tutors.
Please do email them as a first point of contact if you have any concerns you would like to discuss whilst your son is in his first year at AGS.
Here at AGS there is a lot of support available to your son when he starts in September. One part of this support system are the Year 8 Buddies. Your son will have met with some of the buddies during the Induction day. In September, your son will be allocated a Buddy and will have sessions with them each week for the first half term. This allows plenty of discussion time for new students to ask questions or voice any concerns, and also for advice to be passed on.
During Induction day, your son was issued a ‘Year 7 Welcome Booklet’ containing information for him to read over the summer break. Should he have misplaced the booklet during all of the excitement on Induction day, please see the pdf version below;
To report an absence due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, please contact the school office (01296 484545) on each day of the absence. Please include details of your son’s name, form and the reason for absence in your message.
If you are requesting an absence for a future date e.g. a Doctors or Dentist appointment please compete the ‘Absence Request Form’ prior to the absence.
