An Inspector Calls

Update: 12.15pm Thursday 23 March

After consulting with Transport for London, the theatre and the coach company we are advised that following the events of yesterday, the security cordon in London will be lifted today.  The Year 10 and 11 trip to see ‘An Inspector Calls’ will therefore go ahead as planned on Friday 24 March.  Students on the trip will bring a letter home with them this evening with final arrangements for the trip.

Year 8 Options Evening – 16 March 2017

Year 8 Options Evening – Thursday 16th March, 5.30pm – 7pm.

All parents and carers of year 8 students are invited to attend the Options evening to learn more about the next key phase in year 8 students education and the start of their GCSE studies.  Their key stage 4 experience will commence in year 9 in order to give them three years to complete their GCSE’s or equivalent qualifications. As a school we believe this allows for a more focussed learning experience in Year 9. The majority of pupils will not sit their GCSE’s (or equivalent qualifications) until they are in Year 11.

At the Options Evening on Thursday 16th March we aim to:

  • Look at the learning pathways for current Year 8 students as they prepare to move into Year 9, with particular reference to GCSE’s.
  • Inform you of the effect the changes in 14-19 education will have on students’ curriculum opportunities.
  • Encourage you and your child to start thinking about the options available at Key Stage 4 and the opportunities for progression and learning beyond this.

We would urge parents and carers to make every effort to attend this evening which is highly important to their child’s future learning. The evening will commence with a presentation in the hall at 5:30pm followed by a chance to talk to staff about the options available across the curriculum.
