Year 10 Parents' Information Evening

Year 10 parents are invited to attend the Year 10 Parents' Information Evening on Thursday 9th October 2014 at 6pm.

Year 10 parents are invited to attend the Year 10 Parents' Information Evening on Thursday 9th October 2014 at 6pm.


In order to ensure that your child achieves their full academic potential, we would like to present you with an outline of the key assessment dates and how best we can support your child during this important year. Feedback from previous parental surveys indicated that parents would like the opportunity to engage more actively in their child’s education and be aware of when they may need additional support at home.


The transition from Year 9 to Year 10 can be a daunting experience for students, as they begin their GCSE’s.  We want to ensure that your child is happy, confident and motivated about their school life. Having a conversation with your son or daughter about what they enjoy, what they are good at, what motivates them to learn, the environment they want to be in and their preferred learning style can be the key to their success.


Information will be presented on the choices that are available to them after their GCSE’s and how best to make an informed decision about post-16. Parents will be provided with a Year 10 information booklet and details of our updated learning environment, “Frog”.


Refreshments will be served in the school canteen from 5.20pm and the 30 minute presentation will start promptly at 6pm. We hope that you will be able attend this important meeting. Students do not need to attend.  Please return the reply slip on the letter to your child’s form tutor by Monday 6th October. A copy of the letter is available on the website 'Letters' page.
