Year 6 Induction Letter

1st March 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am writing to welcome you and your child to Testwood Sports College. As you are aware, your child has been given a place at the College to start in Year 7 from September 2017.

Before the end of this academic year, there will be a number of occasions when you and your child will have an opportunity to be involved in an induction programme.

From the beginning of June 2017, Prefects, Tutors and the Progress Leader for Year 7, will be visiting our main feeder Junior Schools. Year 6 pupils will have the chance to meet the Prefects attached to their Tutor Group and also get to know some of the Year 7 Tutors.

Four key dates for your diaries are Thursday 22 June 2017 which is the Year 6 Parents’ Information Evening, starting at 7.00pm, Wednesday 5 July, Thursday 6 July and Friday 7 July 2017, which are the Induction Day’s, where your child will spend the whole day from 8.20am to 2.55pm with their new Tutor Group, experiencing lessons and life at Testwood Sports College.

I would also like to bring to your attention the Key Stage 3 curriculum that will be in place from September 2017 for your child. The KS3 curriculum will be mainly completed by the end of Year 8. Your child will then start to work on bridging units toward GCSE courses.

We look forward to meeting you and your child in June 2017 and working together to ensure that your child fulfils his/her potential at Testwood Sports College, where every child matters.

Please complete the reply slip accepting or declining your child’s place at Testwood Sports College and return it to me by Friday 24 March 2017.

Yours faithfully,

Mr C Jenkins       Year 7 & 8 Progress Leader

Mrs J. Pitman       Headteacher
