Year 9 Parents' Evening

We are holding our Year 9 Parent/Carer Consultation Session on Tuesday 11th February 2020 between 3:00pm and 7:00pm.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to speak to your child’s subject teachers, not only to find out more about their progress, but also to discuss any matters that may help us to support them.  You may also have the possibility to discuss option choices for Year 10 where appropriate.  Wherever possible, we expect students to accompany parents/carers to this evening.  For this session, you will be given a timed appointment with your child’s teachers.  It is necessary, however, to limit the time to a maximum of eight appointments of five minutes.  (You can, of course, see fewer than eight).  This allows the evening to be more efficient and reduces the time waiting.  If you require a longer appointment, it will be necessary for you to make arrangements with the subject teacher for a date and time convenient to you both.

Please indicate on the sheet enclosed with the posted letter, the most convenient times for yourself, and select the teachers that you wish to see.  The form should be returned to your child’s Form Tutor or Student Reception no later than Monday 20 January.  Alternatively, you can post or email your request direct to Mrs Caroline Chirnside.  (Email:  Please return the sheet even if you are unable to attend.  We are unable to guarantee that any appointments will be made if the form is returned late.

Ms Walker (Director of Key Stage 3), Mr McLaughlin (Head of Year), Ms Weston and Mrs Richardson (Year Managers), representation from the Student Support Team, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Strong (Careers’ Leaders) will also be available throughout the evening on a non-appointment basis.

Appointments will be posted on Friday 31st January.  If you are unable to attend after the appointments have been made, please notify Mrs Caroline Chirnside as soon as possible.
