How to book a Year 8 Futures Consultation

We hope that we have provided enough information to make this process easy and pain free for you and your child. However, you still may have questions or wish to talk to a member of staff regarding your child’s potential decisions. To this end we will be running a Year 8 Futures consultation evening, this is not compulsory but is there for any parents, carers, or students who wish to speak to either Mrs Roberts (Careers Advisor), Mr Butt (Head of Year 8) or myself, Mr Brookes (Assistant Headteacher). This event will take place on the 24th of March 2021 between 5pm and 7pm. All appointments will be video appointments and will take place using the School Cloud platform. To book an appointment log in to your School Cloud account and follow the instructions. For those of you who did not use School Cloud for our recent Parents and Carers Evening, I attach instructions of how to log in below.
