Dear Parents and Carers
As the new Headteacher at King Alfred’s Academy, I would like to extend a very warm invitation to all parents of Y5 and Y6 children in our local community to the remaining Open Mornings which have been organised to support the transition process.
Following three very successful events this week, we will open our doors again to our newly refurbished West Site for a further three Open Mornings on Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday 5th October. These events begin at 9.30am and will involve a student led tour of the site to allow parents to see first hand all of the superb improvements completed over the summer, as well as providing an opportunity to meet senior staff and peer mentors who will be happy to answer all of your questions. Parents are invited to contact the reception staff at West Site in order to book a place on a tour, but we will be happy to welcome any visitors who simply turn up on the day.
These events will lead up to our formal Open Evening, which will be held on West Site on Thursday 11th October. Parents are invited to come along to hear more about the exciting changes we have made at King Alfred’s to bring about such a positive start to the new school year. There will also be opportunities to visit departments around the site to meet teaching staff and students, and to see first hand the wonderful new facilities our students now enjoy.
I look forward to introducing myself to you in person and welcoming you to West Site. These are exciting times at King Alfred’s – do come and join us to see for yourself!
Mr R Holroyd
