The school will be holding a number of open events over the next few weeks for parents of students at school and prospective parents.
On Tuesday 3rd October, we have our final online welcome evening for parents of students in years twelve and thirteen. It will be an opportunity to find out more about UCAS, opportunities, leadership activities and plans for this academic year. Letters have gone out to parents this week and the meeting code will be issued on the day.
On Thursday 5th October, we have our open evening for parents of children in years five and six. Further details can be found here. We are looking forward to supporting our next cohort of students through the transition from primary school. We anticipate that the school will again be over-subscribed, so please visit us, ask questions and find out more about us.
On Thursday 12th October we have year seven tutor evening, with parents of our new year seven students talking with tutors about how students have settled in to the new academic year.
We follow this with our sixth form open evening which will be held on Thursday 19th October. This will be an opportunity to see the range of post 16 courses we offer and the support for students as they move towards further education and training.
