Entry to Year 7 – September 2022

Prospective Parents’ Evening: Thursday 23rd September 2021

5.30pm to 8.45pm.

Headteacher presentations at 5.45pm, 6.35pm, 7.25pm and 8.15pm.

We look forward to welcoming students and their parents to our Prospective Parents’ Evening. Please be aware that we are restricting the event to students Year 6 only and we kindly request that only one parent or carer accompanies their child and that siblings do not attend wherever possible.

Parents with children in younger year groups will be able to attend in future years. In the interests of the health & safety of our school community, parents are required to wear a face covering whilst on the school site and we ask that you complete a lateral flow test before attending. Please do not attend if you are at all unwell.

In order to limit the number of visitors in the school hall for each one, tickets for the Headteacher’s presentations will be allocated on arrival in reception. Unfortunately, the current situation means we will not be able to provide guided tours, visitors will be provided with a map of the school site and can rely on the excellent signage as they visit departments.
