Starting school in September 2022

Welcome to our Addey's Family! 

Information Evening for new families starting September 2022

Thursday 23rd June 2022

We are delighted to invite all our new families to an informal information evening to welcome you to the school, meet key members of staff and ask any questions you may have about starting secondary school in September. 

There will be two sessions for the Welcome Evening and we would ask that you book onto the session of your choice.  Please do this by clicking this link and completing the form.  If for whatever reason you are unable to complete the form or book via the website, please contact our office who will happily help.  Please let us know if you are unable to attend any of the sessions. 

During the next few weeks you will receive in the post, an admissions pack.  Please complete the Admission Booklet in full and bring it along with the required ID and the School Fund contribution to Addey’s School Reception between 8am and 3pm. Enclosed in the admissions pack will be information about school uniform which we recommend purchasing through one of our suppliers, Bailwood Fashions in Lewisham, or Whitehall Clothiers.

On Tuesday 5th July, we are anticipating being able to offer a formal ‘transition day’ for year 6 pupils from 9am – 12:15pm.  During this day, we will offer students the chance to meet their tutor team and year group and experience some Addey and Stanhope School lessons.  Your primary schools are already aware of this date and we will let you know the exact arrangements nearer the time.  This is a wonderful opportunity for new students to get a feel for what secondary school will be like in September.  

We know you will have lots of questions about starting in September and understand that many of our future Addeyans may be anxious.  Please know that we have a very strong and supportive team in place, and we are currently speaking with all your primary schools to learn as much about your children as possible to make their transition a smooth and joyful experience. 

We really look forward to meeting you at the Welcome Evening and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
