All parents of pupils in the Fifth Year are invited to a Parents' Evening to be held at School on Wednesday

25 January 2017 from 6.00pm to 9.00pm. Please note this is an adjustment to the traditional timing of Parents’ Evening; tutors and teaching staff will be available during this time. I will give an address at 7.00pm in the Main Hall, followed by Dr Waymark, Deputy Head (Academic). Students are also welcome to attend and join in the discussions.

The time is approaching when we should decide which courses pupils wish to pursue in the Sixth Form. At the Parents' Evening you will have an opportunity of discussing the prospects and future with the Group Tutor and other members of staff, in the light of results in the mid-year examinations.

The Group Tutor will arrange the time at which he or she will be available to see you. Subject teachers are available throughout the evening, except those who are Group Tutors, who will be busy during the early part.

As with all such busy occasions, I would ask you to restrict your discussions with the Group Tutor and subject teachers to a reasonable length. If a longer meeting is desirable this can be arranged.

This link will take you to the plan of which staff will be in attendance at the Parents’ Evening. Your son or daughter will be bringing home a paper copy of this sheet detailing their subject teachers and information regarding the time and place of your meeting with their Group Tutor. It is important that you bring that paper copy with you on the evening to assist in identifying the staff you need to speak with.

Due to current building works, parking is limited on site. Please use any free space on the Wilton Road drive. Alternatively, there is parking available via the Kellett Road entrance to the north side of the school. The gate next to the DT building will be open for exit only: please do not try to enter through this gate.

If you have any special needs, as a result of disability, with which you require assistance on the evening, please let Mr Rosenburg ( know by 20 January so that he can try to make arrangements to assist you.

Last term you received a copy of the Sixth Form Guide. Please bring this document with you to the Parents' Evening.

I hope that you will be able to attend however if you are unable to do so, please contact your child’s Group Tutor.

Yours sincerely

Mr A J Thould

Head Master
