New Students

Starting Year 7 in September

We know that students, parents and carers often have many questions about how Year 7 and the school operates, and so we have put together this area to give you an insight into Year 7.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school, and hope that the information in this section helps you to be fully prepared. Starting secondary school is a new experience but we know that you will quickly adjust to being a CFGS Student, make new friends and enjoy having different teachers and classrooms for each subject.

We encourage all of our new Year 7 students to look through these pages and to watch our introductory video with your parents, carers and families.
