Yr11 Parent/Carer Information Evening

Year 11 Parents/Carers

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 11 Information Evening for Parents/Carers on Thursday 2 October 2014 at 6.30 pm

I am writing to invite you to a Year 11 Information Evening for parents/carers.  With so many changes and different demands being placed on students in this current Year 11, I feel it is vital that you are adequately put in the picture as to how the demands have changed and what is expected of the students to achieve their target grades. 

During the evening, you will hear how different subjects have experienced changes in their grade boundaries and also plans of how you can support your son/daughter this year in partnership with us. 

We have a fantastic group of students in Year 11 this year who, with the right amount of parental and school challenge and support can achieve great things.  With trial exams coming up in December, you will be given tips on how to help your son/daughter revise and also how you can support them to get them to make the best of this opportunity. 

In my opinion, it is vital that you attend this meeting.  In the past we have held this evening in February or March, but this time I feel that we need to have this earlier in the year to get the students well prepared for the year ahead. 

The evening will start at 6.30 pm in the main hall and there will be vegetable and chicken curry with a drink available for those who attend.  If you have difficulty in attending this evening, please contact the school to see how we can help.  I cannot stress how important coming to this evening will be. 

To help us with numbers attending, could you please either complete the reply slip below or telephone the school to confirm your attendance. 

I look forward to seeing you on the evening.   

Yours sincerely

Stephen Brady
