This week we welcomed Year 9 parents into school for their parents evening and options evening. It was lovely to see everybody back in the hall and for us all to have an opportunity to celebrate success and think about the ‘even better ifs’.
Thank you all very much for your input into the recent parents survey. The survey has now closed but if you want to share any further thoughts with us, you are welcome to do so via firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to sharing more with you later this year.
