Year 7 Offers for September 2021 EntryI would like to welcome to the school community all pupils and parents/carers of pupils who have been made offers to join us in Year 7 in September 2021.
I know that some parents would like to re-visit the school now that their son has been offered a place, but unfortunately we are unable to host any additional visitors to the school site at this time. I would therefore encourage you to look at the Virtual Open Evening information (available under Latest News) as this contains a wide variety of material which will be of interest to you and your son in advance of the transfer process. In particular, the school’s Instagram account will give you an interesting insight into life at Lawrence Sheriff during recent months.
Our induction day is scheduled for Wednesday 7 July 2021, and will include an evening session for parents, so you may wish to make a note of this date in your diary. The school will be sending out our offer packs in May and these will contain information about a wide range of issues such as the arrangements for the transition day, school uniform and school life at LSS.
Whilst parents may have already provisionally indicated to Warwickshire County Council that they will be intending to accept the place offered, please note that the forms which will be sent as part of this pack must be returned to the school within two weeks in order to formally accept your son’s place at LSS. Occasionally some parents do decide that they wish to decline the offer as they are moving out of the area, emigrating or have accepted a place at a private school. If this is the case, please would you confirm this in writing as a matter of urgency so that the place can be re-offered to another applicant.
I would like to share one final thought directly with all our new Year 7 pupils: I know that the move from primary to secondary education can feel both exciting and daunting at the same time, but I know that you will be both happy and successful here, and look forward to the contribution that each one of you will make to the life of the School in the years ahead.
With all good wishes.
