The first day of term for Year 7 students

We are delighted to be welcoming the new Year 7 intake to the College tomorrow [Wednesday 7th September 2022]. Year 7 students should arrive on South Site by 8.40am. As in the induction days in June, the Year 7 team will be at the front of the South Site building to welcome the children and direct them to the South Site Hall. The students will spend the morning with their Tutor and attend a short assembly with a musical introduction from the Music Department, after which students will commence lessons.

  • As previously stated, students do not need to bring a PE kit on their first day.
  • Students should bring a bottle of water and a pencil case containing a pen, pencil, rubber and ruler.
  • Students can bring a packed lunch or £2.40 cash for a hot meal from the canteen. Cashless catering Parent Pay accounts will be set up shortly.
  • Tutors will provide all students with a welcome pack containing their timetable, computer logon, canteen code etc.
  • If your child is catching the bus for the first time, please be assured that staff will be on duty in the bus park to support and direct them.
  • Should your child be absent, please notify our Attendance Officer first thing in the morning [ absence@helston.cornwall.sch.uk | 01326 572685].
  • We have a number of uniform orders that are yet to be collected from our North Site Reception. If you have any questions regarding uniform, please contact Mrs K Macfarlane [ kmacfarlane@helston.cornwall.sch.uk | 01326 572685].


If you have made an application to the College over the summer holidays, please do not assume your child is able to start tomorrow [Wednesday 7th September 2022] unless a member of staff from the College has been in contact with you. The administrative team are working to process all applications as quickly as possible.
