Year 7 students are starting to make appointments with their teachers to meet with parents /carers to discuss their progress over this school year, and how we can ensure that they achieve their full potential.

It is extremely important that all Year 7 students and their parents, or carers, attend this consultation evening, especially as there is much to be celebrated. 

We are confident that you will support us in this.

We look forward to seeing you.
