On Tuesday the 2nd October we will be holding our annual Open Evening for prospective new Year 7 students and any other children applying for a place at The Gatwick School. The evening will run from 5.00pm to 8.00pm.
This is always an important annual event for us and as such we have taken the decision that Secondary Phase students (Year 7, 8, 9, 10, 11) will depart from school at 1.50pm immediately after lunch. This will enable staff to prepare all the Secondary classrooms and learning areas in both Block A and Block B, in order to show case the excellent teaching and learning that takes place in our school.
Our Primary Phase students (Reception, Year 1, 2, 3 + 4) will depart from school earlier, 2.10pm for Reception, 2.20pm for Year 1+2 and 2.30pm for Year 3+4. There will be no ‘Wrap Around’ for Primary Phase children on Tuesday.
On Wednesday 3rd October, Primary Phase students will commence their day with the usual staggered start times. Secondary Phase students will commence their day at 9.35am (Lesson 2). This is to allow time to reconfigure classrooms and learning spaces after the Open Evening.
I apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for in advance for your support.
Mark Roessler, Head of School
