13+ Parents’ Information Evening – 13-19 Learning Pathways
Dear Parent / Guardian,
I am writing to invite you to our Learning Pathways Parents’ Information Evening to be held on Tuesday 25th February 2020. The time of the session for you to attend is outlined below based upon form group.
These subject choices are amongst the most important ones to be made in Prestatyn High School. This is a crucial evening when we will explain about the subjects and choices your son/daughter will be asked to make for their Key Stage 4 courses next year.
The Options Booklet will be issued to pupils before the evening and the booklet will also be available online on the school’s website. Please bring the options booklet with you on the night. Information will also be given to your son/daughter in assemblies prior to the event. A presentation in the hall will explain the Learning Pathways, the external examinations and the different qualifications available. Information, advice and guidance on making appropriate decisions will be the focus of the evening and establish important dates to come.
There will be an opportunity to look at subject displays about the courses and ask any questions you may have about the options available. Other organisations such as Careers Wales, Rhyl College and others will also be on hand to advise and discuss the opportunities available. Can I please stress, however, that this is not the evening when we discuss the progress of individual students. The parents’ evening for year 8 will take place on June 9th and any further concerns regarding your son/daughters’ progress should be discussed by appointment with Mr. Howcroft-Jones.
Traditionally this information evening is extremely well attended by both students and parents. The evening will be organised in two sessions to ensure that all students and parents derive the maximum benefit from this opportunity to find out more about the many choices available. There is limited parking at school and along Princess Avenue, so with this in mind please try to stick to the times given and where possible to avoid congestion park away from the school.
5:30pm – 6.00pm – Parents & students in Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Neptune
in the Hall, then 6.00pm – 6.30pm browse course and subject displays and talk to subject staff in the Sports Hall.
6.00pm – 6:30pm – Parents & students in Orion, Pluto, Saturn and Venus
in the Hall, then 6.30pm – 7:00pm browse course and subject displays and talk to subject staff in the Sports Hall.
I look forward to seeing you at the Information Evening. If you have any queries regarding the arrangements, please contact me or Mr. Howcroft-Jones.
