Parent Bulletin 03.11.17

This week

  • Our thanks to the parents, carers and pupils who attended Year 11 Parents’ Evening on Thursday – it was a very well attended and successful evening
  • We hope that the Year 8 pupils who went on the Herstmonceux Science Centre visit this week enjoyed their experiences. This is an annual trip that the Science Faculty runs to enrich the curriculum and give pupils additional opportunities for some “hands-on” science

Coming up

  • The likely start date for our planned move away from sQuid and into ParentPay is the end of this month. Please watch out for information to be sent soon regarding how you can help this process run smoothly
  • Wednesday, 15th November is Year 13 Parents’ Evening from 5.00pm to 8.00pm – please ensure your son/daughter has made appointments with their teachers
