JR: T e most enjoyable part of my role is the day-to-day interaction that I have with pupils. One of the fi rst items we had installed was a table tennis table and it’s great to see the enjoyment pupils get out of this. I have even been known to get involved myself and, on rare occasions, I even let them win a point or two.


What makes Year 7 and 8 at Wellingborough different from other schools? JR & JJ: Wellingborough School prides itself on academic, artistic and sporting excellence, underpinned by committed pastoral care. At the heart of the pastoral care system are the Houses. Pupils are affi liated to one of seven Houses in Year 7 and 8 and participate in all major House activities.


How has the school coped with remote learning? JR: Wellingborough was very well prepared for remote learning. We already use a platform that teachers, pupils and parents have access to, and where homework is set for pupils. It was not a giant leap to organise remote learning through it: setting tasks, uploading resources and communicating with pupils.


Aside from the academic curriculum, what extra activities are on offer? JJ: Wellingborough has a vast co-curricular programme which includes opportunities to get involved in music ensembles, drama productions

and sports teams as well as multiple enrichment activities during lunchtimes.


What support is in place to help new pupils joining the school? JR: T is year, there have been many new starters both in September and since then. We recognise that this transition can be diffi cult and based on information from new pupils’ previous schools and parents, we assign each new starter a ‘buddy’. Buddies help new pupils to fi nd their feet, introduce them to new friends, show them where their lessons are and everything in between.


Can pupils start at any time of year if space is available? JJ & JR: Although entrance examinations for Year 7 and 8 predominantly take place in January (for the next academic year), we welcome in-term admissions throughout the year, space permitting.
