Open Evening Thursday 5th October 2017 5pm - 8pm Presentations at 5.15pm, 6.15pm and 7.15pm – George Spencer Academy warmly invites you to our Open Evening for prospective Year 7 students. The evening will offer opportunities to listen to a presentation by our Principal and a chance to tour the school and see our staff, students and subject areas in action. We are an expanding school and welcome students from inside and outside of our catchment areas. Parking is via the Toton entrance of the school only (Post Code NG9 7AJ for Sat Nav) There is no parking on the Stapleford side of the academy. View the flyer here.
Next Wednesday is our first Parents Forum of the year and will be a chance to 'Meet the Principal.' The Parents Forum takes place each half term, usually on a Wednesday evening from 6pm. It is a chance to meet other parents, chat to some of our staff and ask questions about the way the school works, give feedback and influence policy making in the school. Over recent years the Parents Forum have instigated the change in uniform suppliers, changes in reporting, improvements in the website, changes in communication to parents and helped with the development of the the PARS rewards system.
All parents are welcome to attend, there is no commitment to attend all of the meetings and the agenda will change each half term - this will be decided by the group. Our Principal, Fraser Mitchell will present at the first meeting and it will be a chance to get to know a little more about him, his thoughts on the school and to help set the agenda for the next meeting. If you are interested in attending, please come to the Conference Centre for 6pm on Wednesday 13th September. If you can't make it, but would like to attend future forums, please drop me an email and I will keep you updated.
