Prospective Year 5 students - opportunities to visit
Dear Parents of Year 5 pupils
I appreciate that choosing the right secondary school for your child is an important decision and thank you for considering Furze Platt Senior School. We are an ambitious, successful and inclusive school with much to offer within and beyond the classroom. We aim to ensure our students are academically qualified but also mature young adults of whom the Furze Platt community can be proud.
Given the success of our school, we receive an increasing number of enquiries from Year 5 parents about opportunities to visit Furze Platt Senior School. This letter provides you with advance notice of dates. It also extends a special invitation to Year 5 parents and pupils to come to an Open Morning this term.
Parents are welcome to visit us:
1. Open Morning - Monday 1st July
Year 5 parents and pupils will have the opportunity to meet the Headteacher and other members of the Senior Leadership Team, tour the school and meet some of our students. Please contact the school on 01628 625308 to book an Open Morning tour.
2. School Tours — Autumn Term
We run regular school tours during September and October. Due to popular demand, they will run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9.15am - 10.15am, beginning on Monday 9th September. Children are welcome to accompany their parents. Please contact the school on 01628 625308 to book a tour.
3. Open Evening
Our Open Evening will be held on Thursday 3rd October from 6.00pm — 9.00pm. This is a wonderful way to meet many of our students and staff. More details will appear in the local press and on our school website (www.furzeplatt.com) in the Autumn term.
4. Headteacher's Surgery
A few parents may have specific matters they wish to discuss with the Headteacher. I offer parent surgeries after school every Monday in term time. On September 16th, 23rd and 30th, October 7th, and 14th I offer these to parents of Year 6 children. Please contact the school on 01628 625308 to book an appointment.
I hope that we are able to welcome you, and your child, at one or more of the above events. I am sure that they will enable you to learn more about our achievements, tour our fantastic facilities, and meet our wonderful staff and students.
