KS4 Information Evening
As you are no doubt aware, we are about to start our subject choice procedure in preparation for Year 10 courses of study. As one of the phases of this procedure, we will be holding our subject information evening on Wednesday 31st January at 6.00 pm in the hall. It is intended that the meeting will last approximately one hour. Students are welcome to attend but they will receive all the necessary information within school.
The evening will provide an opportunity to cover aspects of the selection process, the various courses available and hopefully answer any queries. One of the most important features of the evening will be that each subject area will be represented and staff will be available to consult about their subject. They will not be making comments on your child’s progress/potential since the opportunity for those discussions will be available at the parents’ evening on Thursday 8th March following the issue of the tracking reports prior to this date.
We look forward to seeing you on the evening.
Mr S C Haycocks ( Headteacher) and Mr J S Morgan (Deputy Headteacher)
Year 11 Parents' Evening is on Thursday 8th February starting at 4.00 pm – 7.00 pm. Your son/daughter has a page in their School Planner to make appointments and teachers will be looking to make these appointments over the coming days in the lead up to Parents' Evening. Parental attendance is encouraged as it helps to give you an indication as to how your child is doing at Balshaw's. Can we ask you please to encourage your child to make appointments and we look forward to seeing you on the evening. Some of our Year 11’s will be away on the Iceland Trip on that date but parents should still attend even if their son/daughter cannot. Feedback from the three science teachers who are supervising the trip will be provided to parents of Year 11 students in their class.
Mr J S Morgan
