Joining Us

Easing first day nerves

Induction

We provide a comprehensive induction programme before the start of the Lower Sixth.

Our induction session introduce new students and their parents to life at The Perse, providing the opportunity to run through various administrative tasks and help everyone get to know each other and their new surroundings.

New Lower Sixth students are invited to attend two induction sessions before they begin their A level or Pre-U studies at The Perse. The first is held at the end of the Summer term to provide students with reading lists and preparation materials to ensure the best possible start to A level study. The second is held just before the start of the new term to take students through a number of sixth form practicalities, to confirm subject choices and to provide advice on study skills.
