The Gatwick School Secondary Phase Open Evening - Wednesday 2nd October 2019

Dear Parents/Carers,

The Gatwick School Secondary Phase Open Evening - Wednesday 2nd October 2019

On Wednesday the 2nd October we will be holding our annual Secondary Phase Open Evening for prospective new Year 7 students September 2020 and any other children applying mid-year for a place at The Gatwick School. The evening will run from 5.00pm to 8.00pm. This is 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.  The time in the afternoon will enable staff to prepare the Secondary Phase classrooms and learning spaces in both Block A and Block B, in order to showcase the excellent teaching and learning that takes place in our school.

Our Primary Phase students will finish school following the normal staggered finish times. Please note, that there will be no ‘wrap around’ provision (EnergyKidz) or after school club activities for Primary Phase children on Wednesday 2nd October. This will allow primary phase room set up, general school cleaning and car park clearance ready for the start of Open Evening.

On Thursday 3rd October, Primary Phase students will commence their day with the usual morning start times. Secondary Phase students will commence their day an hour later at 9.30am with House Time and then Lesson 2 at 9.45am. Staff will use this time to reconfigure classrooms and learning spaces.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for in advance for your support.

Kind regards

Mark Roessler

Head of School
