Fourth Form Parents’ Meeting 

Friday 29 January, 2 – 4 pm  

The Parents’ Meeting for parents and guardians of Fourth Form pupils is on Friday 29 January, 2 – 4 pm.  All Parents’ Meetings will be conducted via video calls. The instructions for booking and making video appointments will be sent out next week, so do please look out for these.    

Each parent/guardian can book up to ten 5-minute appointments with subject teachers, and can then invite one more person (parent, guardian or pupil) to join the appointments, so a meeting can be conducted from two separate devices (smartphone or laptop).  If you are unable to make the appointments that you wish to, please contact your child’s tutor who will be able to obtain feedback from the relevant member of staff for you.  If you wish to speak to your child’s tutor or Houseparent, please e-mail them directly.
