Welcome to Year 7 at Prendergast Vale School

I am delighted to welcome you to Prendergast Vale School and that you have chosen to join our school community. You are about to start a new chapter in both your academic life and personal growth. 

We all work incredibly hard to ensure you feel both supported and challenged in all of your lessons, encouraging you to stretch yourself and develop as an independent learner. 

I can reassure you that you have an amazing journey ahead of you, with so many opportunities to come - from meeting life long friends to visiting new places, discovering hidden talents and finding your passion.  

We look forward to welcoming each and every one of you as you embark on this new adventure.
