Welcome by the SLT link to Year 7

Dear Parents, Carers and the MBS Students of the Class of 2025!

I hope you are all as excited as we are to welcome you to Marylebone Boys’ School!

My name is Ms Rogers and I have been at Marylebone Boys’ School since 2016, and this year I am starting a new role as the SLT link to Year 7. I am confident that this will be such an exciting year for all of us and I cannot wait to meet you all!

In five years, you will be The Class of 2025 and have a fantastic set of GCSE results which will equip you will all the skills and knowledge you need to be successful. However, as much as these qualifications are important, I hope you will also have made lots of memories and be proud of all your achievements. At Marylebone Boys’ School, we talk a lot about the 3Ps; Positivity, Professionalism and Productivity. It is our aim that you become positive, professional and productive young men, and I will make sure I do everything I can to help you do that.

I teach French and Spanish (and a little bit of Latin) and I am passionate about languages and travelling. I also like to cook for my friends and go to the theatre.

I understand that this transition to Secondary School might feel overwhelming but you have an excellent team to support you through all of the exciting times and the challenging times. You have a wonderful Head of Year and Mr Adnani will always be on hand to support you.

We of course appreciate that you did not have the opportunity to finish your time at primary school in the way you would have wanted. We are also trying to find ways in which you can come into school before September to meet some of the teachers, meet your form group and form tutor and experience what a typical MBS day looks like. We will be in contact about this possibility as soon as we can.

Be safe, hope to see you in person soon and we will definitely meet in September!

Yours sincerely,

Ms Rogers

Acting Assistant Headteacher

Welcome by the Head of Year 7

Dear Parents, Carers and the MBS Students of the Class of 2025!

Welcome to MBS! My name is Mr Adnani and I have been a Maths and Computer Science teacher for the past 11 years and currently entering my third year at Marylebone Boys' School. My biggest achievement in my career is taking a cohort of 180 students from year 7 to year 13 and seeing them achieving their dreams. Most important person in my life is my mum and I always endeavour to make sure I can make her proud.

It is so very strange to be writing to you about Year 6 into Year 7 transition in these unprecedented times and how the transition journey to Marylebone Boys’ School is going to have to adapt and look different this year. Typically, MBS staff would have already started going into primary schools, meeting lots of excited and curious Year 6s and having in depth discussions with their teachers. Transition to secondary school is one of the biggest and most significant changes in a child's life, which is why at MBS we place the utmost importance on getting it right to ensure all of our new Year 7 students are happy, motivated and primed to be the best that they can be.

We will continue to work with primary schools as we always have to find out as much as we can about your son before they begin life at MBS. What I can say with absolute certainty is that we are very much looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you into the family.

Our approach to transition consists of a bespoke programme of events that is tailored to enable all new students feel the warm welcome that MBS offers and to develop an awareness and application of key attributes that make an outstanding learner. We help to nurture students who are bold, creative, unafraid to take risks in their learning, believe in their abilities and demonstrate resilience no matter the challenge in front of them. Our aim is to instil these skills in our students from the very beginning so that they can go on to be the best that they can be.

In the following term we would usually have an interview day for you and your son to come in and meet a member of staff, an information evening for parents to come and meet the MBS team and a taster day for the students to experience what an MBS day at looks like. We would still very much like to go ahead with these events as it is crucial for the success of your son but this will dramatically depend on what the new government guidelines with Covid-19 will be during June and July. The school is also looking at alternate ways of delivering these sessions to you and your son.

Yours sincerely

Mr Adnani

Head of Year 7

 

Enrichment Autumn Term 2020

The enrichment options for the Autumn Term 2020 can be viewed in the Enrichment Curriculum booklet below.

Enrichment Curriculum booklet

After viewing the options, please click on the link below to indicate which enrichment activity your son would like to participate in. All students in Year 7 must participate in at least one activity during the term.

https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=O0nH3Yvua0-NIBYvTTCMFaU7AyXKvZlHiyM-L14YMrhUNVoxS0NMRkJUQlk1VFNSUkU2MDA3Sk5UVC4u

IMPORTANT - due to government guidelines about how schools will operate in September 2020 following the Covid-19 pandemic, it is unlikely that enrichment activities will start straightaway. However, we would like students to sign up for their activities now so that once we are able to run our full curriculum the students will already be timetabled in their enrichment groups and they can start.
