Good News Update - 02/10/2017

Stoke Park held its first Parent consultation with tutors evening on Thursday 28th Sept. It was good to meet parents of students in Y7,10,12 and take the opportunity to outline how they had settled and progressed since the start of term. Tutors said many parents were very complimentary about the organisation and efficient nature of the event.

Mathematics - Mrs Smith also met a number of parents of Y11 Maths learners to outline the programmes of support we are offering in the coming weeks so they maximise their potential and succeed in achieving high GCSE grades. This was very well attended and another successful opportunity to inform our families what are our targets for their child and how they can help also.

PE - Y7&8 Rugby Festival event organised by Mr Evans-Bent and held at Pinley Playing fields was a really well good opportunity to show emerging talent. '' the pupils played really well against some well drilled and organised teams. Played 3; won 2. Please could we commend the boys’ involved''
