Welcome to Year 7 1

Year 7 - Buddies

Sir Henry Floyd is a place where students feel supported by their peers. We encourage selflessness in our students, a compassion for others and a desire to see them succeed. This is why our 'buddy' system is so popular, last year we had 80 applications from students who were keen to work with our youngest intake.

How our buddy system works

Each form group has six 'buddies' attached to it from our current Year 9. Buddies will work with Year 7 students weekly during registration and help the younger students to get to know the school, as well as each other.

Buddies prepare welcome videos introducing themselves, to help students in each form group get to know them better in preparation for September.

Below you will find an introduction from some of the buddies who have been working with the Year 7 students. They each provide their top tip for settling into our school.
