Welcome New Yr 12-2021

Welcome to students joining Year 12 from other schools. We hope that you find the following information helpful in making your transfer to St. Olave’s as smooth as possible.


Dates/events published on this website may need to be re-scheduled/cancelled due to the current Government guidelines regarding social distancing. We will update details on the website accordingly, if required. 

Our School Policies are published here

Sixth Form Induction

Following the Government announcement on Tuesday 14 June confirming a pause at Step 3 restrictions for 4 weeks and due to the restrictions on large group gatherings under Step 3 of the road map to recovery,  in the interest of public safety we have reluctantly had to CANCEL our Sixth Form Introduction Day planned for 24th June. This is because restrictions advised by the Local Authority make the event impossible to run.

We hope to hold induction events for students at the school at the beginning of September and will also hold an induction webinar on Wednesday 30th June at 1.30pm. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Sixth Form during this. Please access using the link in the email you have been sent.
