You may be aware that in previous years we have offered the opportunity to purchase a stationery pack through school.

Starting at Secondary School - BBC Bitesize
We know that starting at secondary school can be both an exciting and a worrying time for both students and parents/carers. There are some great resources on the BBC bitesize webpage that have been created to help both parties prepare for this process given the additional challenges that we are all facing this year. It is well worth spending some time looking through these with your child, they and you may find them very helpful and they may prompt some important discussions between you.
Starting at Hungerhill Pack
This will be circulated to parents week commencing 3 May 2021.
