Y12 Subject Teacher Evening

Tuesday 5 December 2023, 4 - 6:30 pm, G Block Sixth Form Centre

Dear families,

On Tuesday 5 December, we are holding our Year 12 Subject Evening from 4 - 6.30 pm.

This is a valuable opportunity for you to speak directly to subject teachers regarding students' academic position and their specific next steps, helping you to further support your child. We strongly encourage all families to attend this event to hear specific information about how your child can make stronger academic progress.

You can either join us in person, or online.

The link for online appointments can be shared so family members can join from other locations. The appointments are available to book using the Schoolcloud booking system. There is one appointment per teacher for most subjects, and almost all staff will be available in person on the evening.

Notes on staff availability:

  • There will also be senior staff available throughout the evening, and the chance to book appointments with Mrs Osborne, our careers adviser.
  • Dr Talbot who is our expert on the UCAS process and EPQ project will be available on the evening without booking.
  • For some subjects with two teachers and higher number of students, such as Biology, Business, History, Sociology and Maths, we request that you book with just one teacher.
  • Mrs K Smith, one of our psychology teachers, will be available for appointments online or in person on Thursday instead of Tuesday. Parents of psychology will see a second event available in Schoolcloud.
  • The Computing Science Teacher, Mr Partrick will be available on the evening but online only - you can join his appointments from the Careers Hub where a device and camera will be set up.

Please book your appointments at tgschool.schoolcloud.co.uk/

Booking for the event opens at 6pm Tuesday 28 November at 6pm

We will call some parents in advance where there are high numbers of students on a course and the teacher would particularly welcome to chance to update you face to face on your child's progress.

If you require any help, or think that you need to register your contact details with us, please contact the Sixth Form team by calling 01787 375232 or emailing sixthform@tgschool.net

There is more information and a guide on how to book appointments at www.tgschool.net/subject-teacher-evenings and here is information on how to join appointments online.

If you are not able to attend, or meet the teachers that you would most like to see then teachers are happy individual times to meet or to respond to questions by email at any time.

Year 12 students have also received reports with comments, and these are available to view at www.go4schools.com - if you have not used this system before then you can register as a new user, using the email you provided us as a parental contact

We very much look forward to seeing you next Tuesday.

Regards, Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form Team
