Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form Network Evening on Thursday 5 March 2020

We will be holding our Careers Network Evening Event from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.  This has proved a very successful and popular event for our Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form students to gain awareness and careers guidance from a wide range of professionals in different industries. The evening is designed to be a relatively informal, networking style event to allow our students to meet with adults and discuss their various careers.  To make these evening as successful and useful as possible we need as many volunteers as we can from our parents who are willing to give up their time and help provide some advice and guidance.  If you are willing to take part please email Emma Hanrott at ehanrott@radnor-sevenoaks.org so that we can provide you with further details.

GCSE Mock Examinations Monday 20 January-Wednesday 29 January

Please see the attached timetable and school internal exam procedures, which you will also find on the school website in the Examinations section here, along with JCQ information for students here. School exams are an important preparation for the final external exams and we encourage pupils to prepare fully and seriously for them.  We would be grateful for full parental support in this.  Please ensure that you have read and fully understood the exam procedures information and all pupils should attend school as normal throughout the exam period.

Pupils will receive their exam results in the library on Wednesday 5 February at 10.40am in exactly the same way as they will receive their exam results in August.  A copy of the results will be electronically communicated to Parents at noon, prior to Parents’ evening which takes place on the 11 February.  This Parents’ evening is an important opportunity to discuss the mock results and targets for improvement with the subject teachers so please make a note of the date in your diary.  We wish Year 11 all the best in these exams.

Message from FoRH7 Chair: Liz Baker

The Friends team would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas break. It’s such a special time of year!  

During this term, the Friends team have had a lot of fun at the Charity Dinner, Scafell Pike walk, Fireworks and the recent Prep Christmas Fair. We love the opportunity these events present for the Radnor families to get together and we believe that a close school community helps our children to have a strong sense of belonging to the school. 

In addition, the events help make a difference to others, people and animals, through the charities for whom we fundraise. The recent Prep Christmas Fair saw the children truly getting involved and over £1,500 was raised.  Very well done to all involved.

We are always looking for more volunteers to help in different ways and I will be looking for a co-chair to work with me in the New Year.  If you would like to be involved please do email me (friends@radnor-sevenoaks.org). 

I am looking forward to seeing you in the New Year and in the meantime, wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Liz
