Welcome, Year 7
The Year 7 wellbeing team and I are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Bassaleg this year and supporting you in your transition from Primary school. We want to see you develop as positive, respectful and resilient learners, as well as being active and proud members of the school community. We look forward to seeing you embrace the challenges and opportunities on offer at Bassaleg School this year.

Our aim is to nurture our young people to develop into polite, well-mannered individuals who put kindness at their core. To develop a community spirit which is supportive of one another, to develop healthy relationships which echo the school ethos of belonging. By fostering resilience we can help overcome the barriers that we have faced. By being all these things, we will work hard to achieve our goals and pave the way for our future.

As your Director of Wellbeing, it is my pleasure to guide you on your journey through Bassaleg to help you become happy, helpful and well-rounded young people. At the heart of our year group is kindness, enthusiasm and of course a little bit of competitiveness! These traits are so important in helping you look after your wellbeing; supporting you to make progress and encouraging you to be the best version of yourself. I’m so proud of all you have achieved and overcome so far in Bassaleg and look forward to seeing all of you continue to grow as you take your next steps towards GCSEs next year.

Our Sixth Form is known for its inclusive, supportive and aspirational ethos in which individuals can achieve the best version of themselves they can be. We expect our Sixth Formers to be as committed to enriching the wider school community as they are to their academic studies. Being a Sixth Former comes with many privileges and benefits; our Sixth Formers realise that these entitlements come with responsibilities to give back to the wider school community and to be positive role models. We are extremely proud of our Sixth Formers and have the highest expectations of them.

What our pupils say
"I feel that there are lots of people to talk to in school and lots of people who have the time to listen. I think this is a school which really cares about its pupils."
