13th November 2017
Dear Parents / Carers,
On Thursday 16th November we will be holding our annual Open Evening for prospective Reception students and any other child applying for a place at The Gatwick School. The evening will run from 5.00pm to 7.00pm. This is a really important event for us and we have taken the decision that Secondary Phase students (Year 7, 8, 9 and 10) will depart from school at 3.50pm, in order that we can prepare all the Secondary classrooms in both Block A and Block B to show case the excellent teaching and learning that takes place in our school. Our Primary Phase students (Reception, Year 1, 2 + 3) will depart from school as normal at 2.50pm for Reception, 3.00pm for Year 1+2 and 3.15pm for Year 3.
In order to provide much needed space in the car park for Open Evening Visitors and to allow our Primary staff to prepare their classrooms for tours, please may we ask that ‘Wrap Around’ provision for this particular day be used sparingly if possible and collection and departure be swift.
I apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for in advance for your support.
Mark Roessler - Head of School
