Kick Start Evening – Information for all parents

Dear Parents and Carers,

As mentioned in my letter at the beginning of term, we look forward to welcoming you to Castle Manor on Monday the 26th September for our ‘Kickstart Evening’.

This year we have seen a significant rise in our GCSE results and we are continuing to develop our structures and procedures at school to deliver the best possible education to your child. The purpose of this new Kickstart event is to provide you all the information you need to support your son/daughter to be successful.  There will be information about:

  • The curriculum and home learning
  • Trips and events
  • Exams
  • Communication with home
  • Key staff
  • Attendance and Expectations for Learning

It is important that everyone attends.  Car parking is limited on the school site, so we urge as many of you as possible to leave cars at home.

Year group Start time Location
7 6:00pm Main Hall
8 6:00pm Drama Studio
9 6:45pm Main Hall
10 6:00pm Comms Hall
11 6:45pm Comms Hall

Please complete the reply slip in the letter attached and return to your son or daughter’s tutor by Wednesday 21st September.  If a year group start time clashes with the start time for a sibling, please contact the school directly through Gill Mitchell ( so that we can personally advise you.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Yours sincerely,

Vanessa Whitcombe
