  • Welcome to September's New Year 7

    We are excited to welcome our new Year 7 students starting in September.  We understand that starting a new school can be an unsettling time for both students and parents, even more so than usual during these difficult circumstances.  Our school is a supportive and friendly community and we look forward to you and your families joining us.  We hope you find the information on the following pages useful and informative.  Key documents for our new students to take a look at are the Transition Booklet, FAQ’s for Students and Meet the Team.  We have also added a reading list and a maths activities booklet to help keep you busy over the summer!

    If you have any questions that aren’t answered on these documents then please send an email to

    See you very soon!

    Head of Year 7


    Please see a video below from our Head Student:



    Here are two of our Year 7 students talking about their early experiences at St Bernard's:




    ‘When you are at school you do not realise what an impact your education will have on your life and the places it will take you.  St Bernard’s was a big part of my foundations.  If you have strong solid foundations, you can build anything you want, knock it down and re-build something new if you desire.  However, without good foundations, you will not build anything at all.’
