Year 9 Parents' Information Evening
The Year 9 Parents' Information Evening will take place on Thursday 16th October at 6pm
The Year 9 Parents' Information Evening will take place on Thursday 16th October 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 exam and 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.
Year 9 is a crucial year and for many students and their parents, it can become a stressful time. 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 Key Stage 4 transition and the choices that are available to your child at GCSE. Parents will be provided with a Year 9 information booklet and details of our updated virtual 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 Friday 10th October. The letter is available on the website on our Letters and Permission Slips page.

Assistant Head Teacher
