A reminder that our Year 11 Parents’ Evening will take place on Tuesday 21 January from 4.00–6.30pm. Parents are invited to book and manage their own appointments via our online booking system which will be available until 12.00midnight, Sunday 19 January.

Our Pastoral Team will have a stand at the Parents’ Evening, with resources and information available on Managing Exam Stress, Perfectionism, Sleep Hygiene and Wellbeing. Please go along to see them in B6.
The resources are available from the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, a charity which supports and gives advice to young people and parents in managing their wellbeing. As a school we are looking at how we can work in partnership with the Trust for the benefit of all our students, not just those working towards GCSEs.
