S4-6 Information Evening October 2015‏

I would like to invite you and your son/daughter to attend the S4-6 Parents Information Evening at 6pm-7.30pm on Thursday 1st October in the School Assembly Hall.

The evening is an excellent opportunity for you to gain relevant, up- to- date information that will be invaluable when advising your son/daughter regarding their ‘next steps’. The evening will include presentations from external speakers on:

*UCAS Personal Statements (REACH)
*Financial implications and assistance available when in Higher Education (SAAS)
*Borders College
* LEAPS ( Lothian Equal Access Programme for Schools)

The presentations will be in 15-20 minutes slots and will be repeated throughout the evening, allowing you to visit all the presentations. There will be ample opportunity to question the presenters and/or Pastoral Staff/SLT about any concerns/issues that you may have regarding Further/ Higher Education. If you cannot attend all the sessions you can get further information from your child’s Guidance teacher/SLT.

I look forward to working with you over the next year and would be grateful if your child returns the reply slip below to me as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

P. Beaton
Depute Headteacher
