Apprenticeship Evening, Thursday 31st January 2018

At Lymm High School we are committed to providing our students with opportunities to raise aspirations, develop employability skills and make informed choices.  As part of our CEIAG program, and given the importance of your child’s decision making with GCSE option pathways, post-16 option choices and career pathways, we would like to invite parents and students to visit our Apprenticeship Evening 6-7.30pm on Thursday, 31st January.  Click here for a letter with further information.

You will have many opportunities for discussions with staff during Choices Evening on 17th January, and Parents Evening on 24th January.

All parents/carers of present Year 9 students are warmly invited to attend the above evenings with their sons and daughters to support them through their option choices for Year 10 and Year 11.

Silver DofE Training Day

Dear Parents/Carers,

Get outside the Classroom, the company who support our DofE programme and our training day/expeditions, have informed us that due to staff illness they are struggling to staff one of the training days. This is partly due to us having such large numbers undertaking DofE Awards.

Therefore, Year 10 Silver students will now be undertaking their Training Day on Wednesday 9th January. Please inform your child of this change of date – they will also be reminded on Monday. Please ensure your child reads the Training Day Letter and the DofE Handbook the letter refers to, before next Wednesday.

It is also really important that students arrive in warm and appropriate outdoor clothing/footwear (i.e a waterproof coat) so that they can participate fully – please see letter for details.

Many Thanks
