Hoy Class

Welcome to Hoy!

Hoy Class Team (2021/2022) 


Lizzie Fiona


Our class is made up of 7 year 7 students and is a new class at St Andrew's!

 In Hoy class we work on getting to know each other and the school as well as learning how to express ourselves in different ways.


Summer Term


Our topic this term is Extreme Earth, so we will be looking at the impact on people and places when a natural disaster occurs. We will be doing lots of experiments in science exploring the weather as well as running an enterprise project, so watch out for some of the items we will be making and selling! 


Students will continue to settle in to secondary school and become more independent in all aspects of school life. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our new students and their families to Hoy Class. We look forward to working with you this year! 

Things to note:

Please check the website regularly for class updates and news

P.E day is Thursday; please ensure your young person has a P.E kit in school

Please supply students with a healthy snack each day e.g. cereal bar, fruit, yogurt. DO NOT send anything containing nuts

We recommend sending your young person in with a sports bottle for a drink of water throughout the day 

Please ensure students do not come into school with toys from home, we would hate for them to get lost or damaged.
