Parent Bulletin 09.03.18

This week

  • There was an excellent turnout for Year 10 parents’ evening. Many parents are already asking questions about how they can best support their child in their GCSE studies. Your son/daughter should be recording homework regularly in their planners and it is never too soon to start reviewing work completed in lessons.
  • All Year 11 pupils will have brought home their reports this afternoon. We would be grateful if you could go through the comments and targets from teachers.


  • The Spring term will finish on Thursday, 29th March. Pupils and students in Years 11, 12 and 13 will be registered and dismissed from 1.15pm. Pupils in Years 7 to 10 will have lunch and then be registered and dismissed from 2.00pm. The Summer term starts at 8.35am on Monday, 16th April for all pupils and students.
  • On Saturday, 28th April, Darrick Wood School PSA will be holding a wine tasting event. Further information can be found on the PSA’s website under “Upcoming Events” and will be emailed out next week.

Coming up

  • Sports Relief 2018 is fast approaching and your son/daughter will be able to participate in various fundraising events being held at the School.
  • Our Spring Concert will take place on Thursday, 22nd March at 7.00pm in the Main School Hall. Tickets will be available in advance and on the door – we hope to see you on what promises to be a very enjoyable evening.
