The Year 7 Team

Year 7 can be an equally exciting and daunting experience for young people, having transitioned from primary school to secondary school. We hope that with our various transition days and transition evenings have prepared students and parents for this change. It is our intention that this process has given students every opportunity to feel comfortable, and supported and have confidence with which to start their Bottisham Village College journey.

When students arrive at the college, they will undergo a series of online assessments, as we wish to quickly get an understanding of their strengths and needs.
