Year 5 Information Evening

15th April 2016

Dear Year 5 Parents

Can I remind you all that we are hosting an important information evening on Thursday 21st April, to explain life in years 6, 7 & 8.

I will touch on how the Common Entrance syllabus differs (and is superior) to the National Curriculum (used in state schools); the way in which we assess and track your children’s progress; where next after Copthorne and the minefield that is Senior School selection at 13+. We will finish with a question and answer session.

In order to encourage you all to attend, we will be serving a buffet supper, together with a glass of wine at 6.30pm, with the meeting planned to start at 7.00pm. Year 5 children are welcome to stay on at school and be looked after until the meeting ends at around 7.45pm. In order to inform Karen in the kitchen, please can I encourage you to RSVP to Kathryn, my PA, at
