On Friday 2 September all other students will return. Year 7 students will enter the site using the front gate from then on, off Bowes Lyon Court.

You may have seen a Parent Support Evening on 4 July previously advertised in the paperwork sent to you in April. The decision was taken to move this programme to the Year 7 Welcome Evening on 5 October. At this evening, there will be a carousel of sessions focused on Parent Support and how you can support a Year 7 child. The sessions will include support with Class Charts, attendance and homework. If you require further pastoral support for your child, the Year Leader needs to be made aware to understand the issue and refer to professionals within the College or externally. Further details will be distributed in the Autumn Term.
