Year 11 Students and Parents
The inaugural Radnor House Sevenoaks Community Service Programme for Year 12 has been confirmed in the timetable for 2019-10. This is to take place on a Monday, between 9.40am-12 midday. The confirmed organisations where our students will be volunteering are:
Bradbourne Riding for the Disabled Association, Leonard Cheshire Disability, West Kent Mind and Radnor House Sevenoaks Lower Prep School.
There may, potentially, still be the option of National Trust Emmett's Garden. Attached here is a brief description of what the volunteering will entail at each organisation. In consultation with your child, please could parents of students in the current Year 11, who are returning to Radnor House Sevenoaks for the Sixth Form, complete the attached form and select your preferences for the volunteer programme. This will be a wonderful initiative, and the year group will be paving the way for future year groups to come.
If you have any further questions, please direct these to Mr T. Green- Community Service Coordinator.
Sixth Form Induction - Year 11
I hope that the GCSE exams are proceeding nicely for your daughter/son so far. This is to remind you that we are running our Sixth Form Induction Days on Tuesday 2 July and Wednesday 3 July. Furthermore, we are also asking the 'new Year 12s' back to be part of our Sports Day on Monday 1 July.
I will be sending out further details very shortly as I am currently finalising one or two aspects, but we will be running a visit to Cambridge and a Cambridge University college on the Tuesday, with a day of preparation lessons on the Wednesday prior to the Prize Giving that evening.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on email@example.com
Work Experience - Year 11 and 12
Year 11 and Year 12 will be notified about their work experience placements when they return after half term.
There are a couple of placements in theatre that have been tricky to find. If there are any parents who could offer or know somebody who could offer a placement in this field, please contact Ms Read on firstname.lastname@example.org

Year 10 and 12 Trip to the UCAS Higher Education Conference - Monday 17 June
Please read the attached letter regarding this upcoming trip.
Performing Arts Timetables
The Performing Arts Timetables are available here. Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change. Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom. The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.
Please note there have been some significant changes to timetables after half term to accommodate trips and exams. Please check, especially Speech and Drama.
Summer Touch Typing Courses
If you struggle to get along to the two school TTRS Typing sessions then you may want to learn during the summer holidays. Short, intensive courses are available to learn this most useful life skill.
If you would like to know more, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org or have a look at the attached flier and booking form.
This is a great way to learn!
Please be aware that as the weather becomes milder the risk of ticks increases. There is a risk of Lymes Disease and other infections from the bites so it is important to check and seek medical advice if a tick bite is found or suspected. There is various advice online, but please find a government advice leaflet attached. It is important for pupils to check or be checked after playing in long grass and when they return from weekend trips. This should not be a reason to avoid spending time outdoors, but it is important to be aware and to respond appropriately.
