Subject consultation/options meeting for Y9 students, parents/carers – Thursday 30th March

The booking system is available here.

Individual teacher consultation appointments will take place 4:00-6:00pm and 6:30-8:00pm. Subject teachers will meet with you and your child on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning. You will also have an opportunity to review your child’s exercise books.

There will be a 30 minute presentation to explain the option process at 6.00pm in the main hall.  Students will collect their options form at the end of the presentation.  Colleges, sixth forms, universities, training providers and employers will also be present in the Senior Year Study Zone to give students a flavour of what their future choices might look like. Students will have a chance to view literature and information as well as experiencing ‘have-a-go’ activities organised by the providers.

All meetings will take place in the school hall. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open. The number of appointments will, initially, be limited to five for each student to ensure that all parents/carers are able to participate. Nearer to the time, if additional appointments are available, we will release these into the booking system and notify you.

In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • Child’s first name
  • Child’s surname
  • Child’s date of birth
  • Child’s register class  (in the form of e.g. 9-1)

You will need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem.

If you do not have access to the Internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with Miss Ring.

Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer.
