Hello! We are Miss House and Mr Young, Heads of Year 7. We work alongside our KS3 Pastoral Leader, Miss Roberts, who works closely with our primary schools, spending a lot of time ensuring your child/children has a smooth transition into year 7. Together, we understand that transition can be a scary time, not just for the students, but also for the parents and carers, so together we ensure that your child/children are well-equipped and ready to start at the academy.
As Heads of Year, we have extremely high expectations:
Year 7 is a very important year group. It is in Year 7 when your child will be guided by their Form Tutor, subject teachers, as well as us to become independent learners. They will learn to take responsibility for their class work and home learning with the support of parents and carers. Year 7 is when new friendships are formed, new hobbies are found via enrichment and favourite subjects are discovered. We both look forward to starting a new journey with your child this year.
It is important that your child attends the many enrichment opportunities available at OCA. Your child will find that there is always at least one activity occurring after school each day whether it be sport related, academic or something to help your child enjoy their time here.
