At Southbank, we do our utmost to welcome all new families and help them settle into school life.

Before they start their studies, a new student attends an orientation day to help them navigate their way around their new campus.

On their first day, a student is also paired up with a ‘buddy’ who can answer their questions and provide peer support when it’s needed. This buddy is typically from the same country as the new student or speaks the same first language.

In addition, new parents are put in touch with members of our Parent Teacher Association, who can provide lots of helpful information and support. Plus, we host coffee mornings for new parents, which give them the chance to chat to other Southbank parents, old and new.
