Information Meetings

It is pleasing to see such a positive start to the new term with students looking smart and ready and willing to learn. Thank you for your continued support of the school.

As you are aware, the Department for Education has announced that Brigantia Learning Trust (BLT) are now the confirmed sponsor to succeed Wakefield City Academies Trust (WCAT) and I would like to remind you that there are information meetings regarding this announcement next week on Monday 22 January 2018 at 6.00 pm and Tuesday 23 January 2018 at 4.00 pm.

Due to the aforementioned meetings, the Year 9 Options Evening (scheduled for 23 January 2018) has been postponed until further notice. We expect to calendar this meeting closer to the Easter break and will inform you when a new date is set. There will be senior staff in school at both information meetings to discuss any queries you may have regarding the curriculum for September 2018.

It is an important upcoming time for Year 11 with mocks beginning on Monday 29 January 2018 and running for two weeks. Due to this extended examination period, we will be moving the Year 11 Parents’ Evening from Tuesday 13 February 2018 to Tuesday 27 February 2018 at 3.30 pm – 6.30 pm. This decision has been made to maximise the progress information we can give you regarding your child and to facilitate a Year 11 mock results afternoon on the same date.

I look forward to seeing you at one of next week’s information evenings.
