Year 11 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 14 October – added on 1 October 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 11 Parents’ Evening

I would like to extend to you a warm invitation to visit the school on the evening of Thursday 14 October. This will be the occasion of the Year 11 Parents’ Evening.

If you would like to attend, please ask your son/daughter to arrange appointment times for you with subject staff who will be available from 3.30pm onwards.  Students will be issued with cards on which to record their appointment times, after consultation with parents/carers and subject teachers.  Please ensure that appointment times made are acceptable to you.

We will be using both of our main buildings.  Design Technology, Science and Maths staff will be based in the Technology Building.  All other subjects will be hosted in the main hall of the 1936 Building.  The split arrangement will have implications for students as they arrange their appointments. To avoid having to repeatedly change buildings, the subject appointments should be grouped together accordingly.

Appointments will be available at five-minute intervals.  If you anticipate needing more time, please do not hesitate to contact the school to speak to the appropriate member of staff.  We are required to keep a register of attendance; could you please sign the registers when you enter the main reception area of the 1936 Building?

Despite many of the COVID-19 restrictions having been lifted, we are keen to demonstrate that we take our visitors’ and staff safety extremely seriously.  We would, therefore, appreciate it if you will consider wearing a face covering during your visit.  We have also decided to limit the number of visitors at any one time.  Therefore, we ask that only two adults attend, along with your child, of course!

I also need to bring to your attention the car-parking situation on the school site.  We have a large car park, accessible from Lisle Road.  We do ask you not to park in the side streets around the school.  Please use the marked bays provided within the school grounds. Thank you in anticipation.

If you have any questions about the evening please contact Mr Green, Head of Year 11, via email:

Yours Sincerely

Mr D Amos
Acting Head teacher
