This week there has been a series of Parents' Evenings at Colston's. For parents with boys and girls in Year 10 and the Lower Sixth there have been information evenings at which the Headmaster and senior staff have talked about academic matters.
Each of these information sessions has been followed by a social event where parents have been able to meet the Heads of House, the tutors, the house officials and school prefects as well as being able to socialize with each other.
The evenings have been well attended and, from the early feedback, much appreciated by the parents.
The Year 10 parents' information evening provided an opportunity for parents to find out at first hand about the demands placed on the pupils as they start their GCSE’s and some of the key points in their academic life over the next two years. Dr Keith Dawson, the Key Stage Co-ordinator, particularly spoke about working habits, coursework, examinations and assessments.
