Year 11 Parents Evening

We are inviting all parents/carers to your last Year 11 Parents’ Evening.

This will be held on Monday 27th February 2017, from 3:45 to 6:15 pm. Please come along and support your son/daughter in the run up to their final exams. As the mock exams have now taken place you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and receive advice on how you can best support them at this vital time.

Appointments commence at 3.45 and your child has been given an appointment sheet. It is their responsibility to make appointments. Please check with them over the next few days that they are making appointments. We look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Accelerated Reader Programme

All students in Year 7 and 8 should have a book to read over the half term break. Everyone should aim for an average of 20 minutes reading each day.
We are completing our STAR tests after the break and are looking forward to seeing how much the students have improved.
Happy holidays,
Mrs O’Loughlin.

Year 10 Parents’ Evening

Year 10 Parents’ Evening will be held on Tuesday 21st February from 3:45 – 6.15 pm.  Students have been given letters and appointment sheets to take home this morning.  Please discuss with your son/daughter what time you would like your appointments in order for staff to book them in before we break up for half-term.

This Parents’ Evening is the last one before students move into the final year of their GCSE studies. They have completed formal assessments during the last two weeks and this will be an ideal opportunity for any issues or concerns to be discussed with school.

If for any reason you can’t make the actual evening, but would still like to discuss any aspect of your child’s progress – please contact myself at school.

Battlefields Trip for Yr’s 9, 10 & 11 (Somme)

Our Battlefield trip is getting nearer (next week!), therefore to make sure our students get the most out of the trip, we have arranged a parents’ meeting this Thursday (2nd Feb) at 3.45pm in school. You will be given up to date details on departure times, what clothes your child needs and other important information. You will also be given important contact information in case you need to contact us whilst we are away.

We are looking forward to taking your child away as one of the 31 students partaking in the trip. We are sure they will never forget this experience, particularly when watching the ‘Last Post’. If your child would like to lay a wreath on behalf of our school, they will need to bring their school uniform with them. We will tweet some photos during our time away of the various locations we are visiting and if you are lucky, your child might bring you some chocolates back from the chocolate shop!
