Starting secondary school is an exciting time – you’ll make new friends, learn new subjects, meet new teachers and explore a whole new building.
We’ve spoken to a number of our current Year 7 students, who will moving into Year 8 in September, about their experiences since joining North Liverpool Academy.
Rachel Hallmark Coburn
Hi, my name is Rachel and I have been at North Liverpool Academy since September. The year has whizzed by and I can’t believe I will be going into Year 8 soon. The best things about North Liverpool Academy are the teachers and the fun lessons. My favourite lessons here are performing arts where we all get a chance to work with each other on creating role plays and dramas. I also like PE and am on the netball team. I hope you are looking forward to coming up in September and that I will get to meet you. Have a lovely summer.
Hi future Yr 7 students. My name is Hayley and I have loved my last year at North Liverpool Academy – I can’t believe how quickly it has gone and how much I have done. I really have enjoyed maths this year as I have felt really challenged and I have also enjoyed all the after school clubs and enrichment activities that I have had a chance to take part in. You will love being a new student in North Liverpool Academy. Have a fantastic summer before you arrive.
I’m Robyn and I am in Year7 but will probably be in Year 8 when I see you. Before I came to North Liverpool Academy, I felt a little scared as the school seemed so big and I never thought I would find my classes. Don’t worry as you will soon get used to it. I have made loads of new friends since I have been here and my favourite lessons are drama and science – I really like it when the teacher allows us to do experiments. I hope you have a super summer and see you in September.
Hello new North Liverpool Academy students. I just wanted to tell you not to worry about coming up to join us in September as I know it will seem so big after your primary but you will soon love it here. You will make heaps of new friends and if you are going on the PGL activity, you will have a fantastic time.
Hi, my name is Tyrese and I am one of the year 7 bloggers for North Liverpool Academy. I meet with the rest of the team to write about what it is like here at the academy and am hoping it will give you an idea of what you will be getting up to when you arrive. My favorite subject is PE as I love playing football. I have made loads of friends since starting here and they have come from many different primary schools. You’ll soon settle in just like I did.
John Paul Calvert
Hi, my name is John Paul and I have really enjoyed my first year at North Liverpool Academy. My favourite subject is PE but I also like history at the moment as we are learning all about the Spanish Armada. The school will seem really huge at first but there are plenty of new people to meet and everyone is friendly so they will help you find your feet over the first few weeks.
My name is Joe and over the last year I have made so many new friends. The school seems so big compared to primary school but there are lots of things to do and plenty of people to help you so don’t worry. I really enjoyed PGL last summer as there were loads of great activities and would love to go again but it’s your turn. My favourite subjects are PE and maths and I feel that I have learnt so much this year.
Libbie Mae Preston
Hello future Year 7s and welcome to North Liverpool Academy. My names is Libbie and really have enjoyed my first year at secondary school as I really like my teachers and the fun lessons I have been in. It was strange at first to be in such a huge school but everyone is friendly and I soon settled in. I really have enjoyed English and history this year and am a keen reader so I am really excited about the new library that is opening up. Hopefully, everything will be up and running when you arrive in September.
