Frequently Asked Questions

Is it hard in the first few weeks?
There will be some differences between Primary and Secondary school when you first move up, however you should not worry too much about it; you will learn your way around quickly and it should not take long for you to get used how Glyn School works.  There is a big team here to support you and if you are finding it hard come and speak to us and we will be able to help you.

What will happen if I lose something?
If you lose something go to Student Reception, before school, during break time or after school, where we have a lost property box where stray items get handed in.  Please make sure that you name all of your items (including uniform) as it is much easier for us to ensure anything you lose is returned to you.

What happens if you forget your homework on the day you need it?
We would not recommend ever forgetting your homework, however if you do then you could get a warning from your teacher the first time, or a detention after that. If you fail to do your homework because of family reasons or illness, come in with a signed note from your parent or carer explaining the situation

How long did it take me to find my way around?
It does not take a long time for you to find your way around, but teachers will be very understanding if you are slightly late for your lessons in your first few weeks. If you are lost around the school feel free to ask anyone in the corridors and they will be happy to help.

Can I bring mobile phones into school?
You are allowed to bring phones to school, however you do so at your own risk and they must be switched off in your bag.  You are not allowed to have them out during lesson time unless at teacher has allowed it in a lesson.  Mobile phone must not be used at any point whilst on the school site. If a student is seen with their phone out, it will be confiscated as per our Mobile Phones Policy Procedure.

Will I need to bring my P.E or Games kit on the first day?
No, you will not do PE or Games on your first day.  

Which language will I study?
Year 7 will study French and Spanish over the first two terms.  In the third term they will then select their language after experiencing both languages at Glyn School.

How many pieces of Homework do you get in a week?
Over a week you can expect up to 6 pieces of Homework.  However, we will only set English and Maths Homework in the first four weeks while you settle into life at Glyn School. After this time homework for other subjects will be introduced.  

When will I find out which House I am in?
Students will find out which House they are in on the Transition Day.

Are you allowed to wear trainers?
Trainers are not part of the Glyn School uniform. If you are injured and need to wear trainers, you will be required to have a signed note from Parents or Carers which must be shown to your Head of House each day, anything longer than one day will need medical proof from a professional.

How long are lessons?
Lessons are 60 minutes in length.

What clubs are there for Year 7?
There are a huge range of clubs that Year 7 can join.  Below is a list of some of the clubs we had on offer this year:

• Sporting Clubs - football, rugby, basketball, badminton, cricket, athletics
• Drama
• Music
• Science
• Maths
• Lego
• Computing
• Minecraft

What happens if you are late to a lesson?
The first few weeks you will be given a map and teachers will be very understanding if you are slightly late for your lessons. However, they will expect you to be on time after this, as you will know your way around. If you are late to a lesson, the teacher will put a late mark in the register and an accumulation of these will lead to a late detention; individual teachers may also give sanctions. 

Is secondary school fun?
Yes!

What sports teams are there at Glyn School for Year 7?
There is a whole range of sports on offer at Glyn School for you to take part in. In the winter months there are Football and Rugby academies at Priest Hill, as well as Table Tennis, Basketball and Badminton in the sports hall. In the Spring and Summer terms we change to Athletics, Cricket and Softball.

Where do I go if I feel unwell during the day?
If you feel unwell during a lesson then you need to inform your classroom teacher, who will then give you permission to go to the medical room. This can be found at student reception. If you are unwell at break and lunch you should go straight to the medical room.

Is the food in the canteen good?
Yes - the food at Glyn School is fantastic.  There is an amazing range and it tastes good.

Is it hard to keep organised?
No - make sure you have a copy of your timetable at home and pack your bag the night before to make sure you have everything you need.  Also, do your ILT on the night it is set so you do not allow too much work to mount up.

How long is break and lunchtime?
Morning break is 20 minutes and lunchtime is 40 minutes.

What happens if I get lost within the school?
If you get lost you can firstly check the map you are given to work out where you are. If after that you are still unsure you can ask another student or member of staff, who will be able to tell you where you are and explain or show you where you need to get to. Finally, if there is nobody to ask you can always go to student reception who will be able to help with any questions.
