Year 7

Form Groups and The House System

Each form has 30 pupils in the form. Some may be friends from Primary School, but most will be people students have never met before.

We have seven school Houses at Chancellor’s which comprise pupils from all Years (7 – 13):

  • Arundel
  • Beckett
  • Hailsham
  • More
  • Somers
  • Wolsey
  • York

Each form group is attached to a particular House which students can’t forget, as the form group letter serves as a reminder. There are regular house competitions and events in which students can represent their house, including our annual sports day.

Year 7 - Homework

Year 7 students will be given one or two pieces of homework a night, which should be available to view online on the Show My Homework website. Each piece should take between 30-40 minutes to do.

We would encourage students to complete their homework on the night it is set. This way they will never have to rush to finish it and will always have the weekends to themselves. There is a homework timetable so students will know which homework to expect on which nights.

Written homework will not necessarily be set on every occasion. Tasks may involve reading, oral work or an investigation. A classroom is available for study and preparation each lunch hour and most subjects offer a lunchtime help club if additional support is needed.

Year 7 – Detentions

We expect all students to behave impeccable, in line with our very clear school and we have a reward point system to encourage good behaviour

Every new Year 7 pupil worries about detentions, but they are easy to avoid if students...

  • Enter the classroom quietly and are correctly dressed
  • Bring the correct equipment for each lesson
  • Work hard during lessons
  • Do not talk or act silly during lessons
  • Hand in homework on time
  • Are polite and courteous at all times around the school

If students break any of the school rules, then there are a few things that can happen:

  • The teacher may tell students off or send them out of the room
  • The teacher may phone parents/guardian
  • The teacher may email parents/guardian
  • The teacher may write a letter to parents/guardian
  • Students may be ‘on-called’ from a lesson, where they sit with another teacher
  • Students may be given a breaktime detention (10-15mins)
  • Students may get a lunchtime detention (20-30mins)
  • Students may get an after school detention (varies from 45mins – 2 hours)
  • Students may spend some time in our inclusion room
  • Students may get a fixed term exclusion from school

Year 7 - Clubs

There are lots of clubs at Chancellor's, some of which run at lunchtime and some after school.

See the main school website as well as posters around the school for all the clubs on offer at lunchtime and after school.
