S3-S6 Parents Evening

Colegio-Privado-Internacional-Britanico-Ingles-Las Palmas-Maspalomas-English-School-s3s6parentseveningDear parents of S3-S6 students: I am writing to inform you that Parents Evening will take place on Monday 30th of October at 4:15-6:45 pm.


During this time you will be able to see any teacher who teaches S3,S4, S5 or S6 subjects. May we ask not to spend more than 5-10 minutes with each teacher so that all parents have the opportunity of talking to any teacher they wish. Please be aware that the form tutor will not have information to pass on to you about all the subjects your son/daughter is taking. This evening is designed for you to speak with individual teachers, not the form tutor. If you wish to see the form tutor you need to make an alternative appointment from Wednesday 8 November and ask for an academic report when you ask for the appointment. Nonetheless, Heads of Department (for academic issues) and Heads of year (for pastoral, behavioral issues) will also be present during Parents Evenings in case you wish to talk to them.

The last day for appointments before Parents Evening will be Friday 20 October and the first one Wednesday 8 November. In addition to the three Parents Evenings of each academic year, staff and forms tutors are available during the year to discuss with you your child's academic and personal development. However, please consider the dates of Parents Evenings as the key dates for contacting teachers (as these evenings coincide with half term and it is the best time of the term to assess children's work) unless, of course, an urgent matter requires appointments on other dates during the school year. Reports will be given to students on Friday 22 December 2017 Please consult the school calendar (available in the webpage) in order to find out holiday dates.

Information for parents of S4,S5,and S6 students: In order to validate to the Spanish Secondary Education E.S.O, and promote to S5, S4 students must pass in the June report all internal grades and in August a minimum of 4 IGCSES. Otherwise the student will not be able to move to the Sixth Form.

In order to promote from S5 to S6, students must pass all internal grades in the June report and a minimum of 1 A level and 2 AS exams in August.

S4 parents will receive in late January a Mock report which will show the grade gained in the Mocks exams held in December. S5 and S6 will sit their Mock exams in February and you will receive a Mock report in March. Additionally, S5 and S6 students will receive a Predicted AS/AL grsde report in January.

Please do not access school premises before 4.10 to avoid traffic jams with school buses and do not park in the far end of the road opposite the Primary building.


Yours Sincerely,

Pedro Tomás
