Caitlin’s Journey

Year left: 2015

Destination School at 11+: Notre Dame School

Which teacher at Weston Green inspired you the most and why?
The teacher that inspired me the most was Mrs Earp. She was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. She had a great sense of humour that made her lessons both fun and enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed her lessons so much that no one even thought about misbehaving! Not only does Mrs Earp know almost everything, but she was also very patient and kind and I knew that I could always talk to her about anything that was bothering me. Her encouragement helped me to gain confidence in myself (something that I lacked when I first arrived at Weston Green) and got me through the 11+ with a scholarship. Mrs Earp also taught me what I needed to know, to make sure I made the most of Year 7.

What achievements are you most proud of?
The achievements that I am most proud of are: being chosen to be a finalist in the poetry competition, getting the Plate at Sports Day and winning the Harvey Cup on my last day of school. My mum says I should also be proud of always working hard and trying my best.

In what ways did Weston Green prepare you for life and for your secondary school?
Weston Green helped to prepare me for life at secondary school very well. I had responsibilities such as showing parents around for the Open Days and I went away without my parents on the trips abroad. I was taught to be more independent, especially in Year 6, more responsible and more resilient. I improved my problem-solving techniques and became more confident. At some point or another, I have needed all of these qualities at Notre Dame. I also found that I had already covered the basics of quite a lot of the early work in Year 7 and this gave me confidence in my own abilities and settled a lot of my anxieties.

What is your fondest memory of your time at Weston Green? 
My fondest memory of Weston Green was going on the PGL residential and trying new things out. I also really enjoyed the Flour Babies week!

Is there anything else you might like to tell us about your time at Weston Green?
I never wanted to leave Weston Green as it taught me so much and the environment was friendly and encouraging. I wish that it was a secondary school as well! Unfortunately, everyone has to move on, so I made sure that I made the most of my time there and took every opportunity that I could. I am really enjoying my new school and have made lots of new friends. I play netball for the school team and am doing well in my lessons. Even though I have left Weston Green, I hope I will be allowed to come and visit everyone again soon.
