We have two calendared Parents’ Evenings for our Year 11 cohort these are scheduled to take place on Thursday 23rd January and Tuesday 28th January 2020. You will only be required to attend one of the Parents’ Evenings and this is determined by half year group population that your child is part of.
- If your child has Core PE on a Friday Period 1 and Period 2 you will be required to attend the parents evening on Thursday 23rd January 2020.
- If your child has Core PE on a Friday Period 3 and Period 4 you will be required to attend the parents evening on Tuesday 28th January 2020.
Please check your child’s timetable on Go4Schools.
Your child will be given a paper booking sheet by their form tutor, they will then use this to book 5-minute appointment slots with each member of staff. Please make sure your child knows what times are convenient for you to attend. It is advisable to leave 5 minute gaps between each appointment to ensure you can move between different rooms.

We will be holding our second Harry Potter Book Night on Tuesday 4 February 2020 from 4 to 6 pm in the LRC. All students are welcome to join us for a few hours of all things Harry Potterish, including games, potion-tasting and a quiz finale. Any student wishing to dress up as a Harry Potter character is very welcome to do so. There will be a prize for the best costume on the night.
Places are limited to 30 students. If your child is interested in attending, they need to sign up in the LRC and collect a parental permission letter. As the event finishes at 6pm students will need to ensure they are able to be collected from school by a parent or guardian.
Full cast rehearsals for Bugsy Malone are scheduled for Wednesday 19th February and Sunday 23rd February (during the half term holiday). Both rehearsals will take place from 9.30am - 3,30pm in the school hall. Please encourage your child to attend if at all possible.
