When I was in Year 5, and again in Year 6, I visited The Cotswold School with other children from my primary school. As I looked around, I was surprised how big the school really is and how many staff and students there are. Since starting, I’d say one of the main differences is that we get more homework in secondary.
What about making friends and finding your way around?
One of the best things about coming here is that I’ve made many new friends, but I’ve kept old ones from my primary school and also people I know from my rugby club. Finding your way around gets easier after a while, when you know your timetable and get used to your routine.
What’s learning like at The Cotswold School?
The best thing about learning here is being challenged by my teachers and also having a good time with my friends. Two of my favourite lessons are IT and Art, which are quite different from in primary. In Art, there is always something to do with painting or drawing; and in IT we get to use the computers.
