Year 8 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 7 June – added on 25 May 2022

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 8 Parents’ Evening

I would like to extend to you a warm invitation to visit the school on the evening of 7 June 2022. This will be the occasion of the Year 8 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.  Pupils 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 the main hall and dining hall, as well as the maths and English classrooms.  Design technology and science staff will be using the dining hall, maths staff will be in maths classrooms and all other subjects will be based in the 1936 Building, with English staff in the English classrooms.  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?

I would also like 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 parents 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 Mrs G Mulligan / Mr D Gibson or email or

Yours Sincerely

Mr D Amos
Acting Head teacher
