Our Newest Haberdashers!


We are very pleased and excited that you will be joining us in September. The information on this page should help you to better familiarise yourself with the school prior to starting. We have a video message from your teachers, Miss Drobinski and Miss Edmondson, and a survey for you to complete so that we can get to know you better. 


We're really looking forward to seeing you all in September!


If you have any questions please get in touch: htgfsreception@haaf.org.uk



You can also take a look at our Twitter feed to see what we've been up to recently.

Key Things to Remember


There is a lot of information to take in when your child starts school, but here are a few key things to get you started.


Keeping track of clothes and belongings

All clothes and PE kit should be labelled

The PE kit bag should be labelled on the outside


Things to bring everyday

A water bottle

Your book bag



Please follow the uniform policy link to our uniform page

Hats and scarves (please label these too!) need to be inline with the school uniform - black/grey/navy colours only

Please bring a spare change of clothes (also labelled) in a labelled bag (these clothes stay in school in case of an 'accident')


Home Learning

Reading books given out by the class teacher should be kept in the book bag everyday

Home learning activities are sent out on Fridays and need to be handed in on Wednesdays

Homework should be completed in pencil


For some extra ideas about how to prepare for school, have a look at the different steps on this tracker.
