Our Y10 Partnership Evening is a chance for parents to drop into school and learn more about their child’s journey as they head towards their GCSE exams and post-school life.

The usual event sees a central presentation in the theatre and then break-out sessions with school staff and external organisations which relay the most relevant and up-to-date information.

Naturally, this year’s evening has gone virtual but you can see the following information that would otherwise have been presented on the night:

GCSE English & Maths Update:

More information to prepare you and your child for these critical exams – what is coming and what they need to do…

Revision & Exam Stress:

There is naturally a pressure to deliver in these exams and though stress can be damaging it can be harnessed as a positive so this sessions seek to illustrate the positive steps to take to do well…


This session sees Ask Apprenticeships present on the different apprenticeship models, requirements and routes – a really good overview of this innovative and valuable route into the world of work…

CV Writing:

This session sees our external careers advisor, Giselle Douglas, outline what your child can do to pull together a strong CV to support their post-16 applications.

Sam Sullivan, Assistant Headteacher and KS4 Lead, said: “The Partnership Evenings are designed to ensure school and the home work together to help the child to be thoroughly prepared for the challenges they face. These resources cannot match a real evening, but they get the key details across and are certainly are a step in the right direction.”
