Year 8 Information Evening 2020 ( Published: 30/09/2020)

Welcome to our first ‘Virtual Parental Partnership Event’. Unfortunately, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, extended measures within the Greater Manchester area and exceptional circumstances that surround this, we are unable to host this event in school.

However, we wanted to ensure that in these challenging times we continue to work with our parents and carers to support students with their home learning. We have put together a set of resources to help you support your daughter with her learning out of school.

Please take the time to go through these resources with your daughter and should you have any questions, please contact your daughter’s Year Team or Mr Mycock, Assistant Headteacher directly (


To make up for the cancellation of the physical event, we have been working to create virtual parental partnership resources for both you and your daughter(s):

  1. Parents’/Carers’ Guide to Home Learning
  2. Learning Checklists
  3. Supporting Literacy Development:

  4. How to Use Your Workbook Effectively:
How to Use Your Workbook Effectively

SIMS Parent App
