OPEN EVENING FOR YEAR 7 ADMISSIONS
The school will be open from 6.30-9.00 pm on Thursday 6 October 2016. Members of the Sixth Form will guide prospective students and their parents round the school premises. The Headteacher will talk in the School Hall at
6.45 pm and again at 8.00 pm. (approximate times).
During the following week (10-14 October) parents, who were not able to attend the Open Evening, are welcome to visit the School during the normal working day. Please telephone school reception if you wish to book a visit. Tours will be at 9.15 am and 1.30 pm.
NB The Headteacher’s first talk is normally very busy and the Hall doors are closed for safety reasons once capacity has been reached. Parents are advised to arrive early or take a tour of the school first and attend the later talk.
Car parking at the school is limited with local roads becoming congested. Should you need to park in the surrounding roads please have regard to the access that our neighbours require to their properties. If you are able to walk to the School, car-share or use public transport then please do so.
Davenant has been awarded special recognition by the highly regarded Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT) for our “exceptional results” in the 2015 examinations. In particular, the GCSE results have shown that the school is in the top 10% of non selective schools nationally for high average grades and in the top 20% nationally for progress made by pupils between their KS2 results at primary school and their KS4 results.
The Chief Executive of SSAT, Sue Williamson, writes: “I hope that the SSAT’s Outcome Awards will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Davenant…..I am delighted to congratulate the school.”
