I have consulted with DD and we think the format of last years induction evening was as follows:
Tours of school in groups by current pupils (this is definitely happening again this year as DD is involved)
Girls and parents labelled ! by form group and sit in the hall in correct quarter.
Variety of staff introduce themselves and give speeches.
Selection of year 7's demonstrate the correct and wrong ways to wear the uniform! (also happening this year)
Girls then go to form room with future class teacher while parents go to canteen and taste food
Then swap so parents go to classroom, get more forms, meet form teacher and girls go to canteen to try what is left of the food!
It was a very helpful evening.
