The year 9 Parents’ evening will be held on Tuesday 3 February 2015 from 5.00 pm – 8.00 pm. Parents’ evenings are held to discuss the progress of students based upon their academic grades. To get the most from the discussions we encourage parents and students to attend together. Parents are able to book appointments online by logging into their INSIGHT account.
