Introduction from Miss Stringer Welcome to your new school I look forward to welcoming you to the Brooke Weston family in September 2012. I am sure that you are very excited and enthusiastic about the challenge which lies ahead. At Brooke Weston, we understand that beginning at your secondary school is a huge change for you. No doubt you will be extremely excited and eager, but will also have some concerns about joining Brooke Weston. This booklet has been designed to give you some important information that will be helpful to you before you join us in September. There is information

about the school day, uniform and equipment you will need. In addition there are also some questions that you may want to be answered. If this booklet doesn’t answer your questions, then your tutor at Brooke Weston will be ready to help and guide you when you arrive. At Brooke Weston we work very hard to educate, challenge, socialise and support our students to achieve their full potential. I hope that you will make the very best of all the opportunities that we have to oer you.

Miss Stringer

I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to Brooke Weston. Principal, Brooke Weston
