Alumni Story 2

 How did you feel before you started at your new school?

A bit nervous but excited. 

How did you feel after your first day at your new school?

Slightly overwhelmed by the size and amount of other pupils but fine overall.

Are you used to your new routine and uniform?

Yes. You get used to it pretty quickly.

What are the biggest differences between West Lodge and your new school?

The size. Obviously West Lodge is quite a small school. There are more children in Year 7 in my new school than the whole of West Lodge. 

What did you learn at West Lodge that has helped you in your first weeks at secondary school?

Being organised and don't be afraid to ask questions or to put your hand up to answer a question.
