Open Evening - Letter from Headteacher

Open Evening

September 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

You will soon be making choices about which secondary school you wish your child to attend in September next year. In order to help you to make an informed choice, I would therefore like to invite you and your child to Up Holland High School for our Annual Open Evening, which will be on Tuesday 28th September 2021 from 5.00 pm - 7.30 pm.

The evening is designed to provide you with more information about the school and an opportunity for you to meet our staff and students.

During the evening I will be delivering a presentation that outlines our key values and ethos and why we strongly believe that Up Holland is a positive choice for parents and children. There will be two opportunities to listen to the address the first will be at 5.30 pm and the second at 6.30 pm.

There will be an opportunity to tour the classrooms of the school where you will be able to see the work of individual departments in order to get a flavour of our school and the curriculum we offer. Staff and students will be available to answer any questions that you may have.

This may well be a popular evening and as such visitors should be prepared to wear face masks, particularly in more crowded areas as you tour the school.

Over the next few weeks, Mrs Farren our Primary Lead and I aim to visit some of our feeder primaries for Question and Answer sessions with Y6 students. You can also find key information on our website, along with our school prospectus at:

Up Holland High School is an oversubscribed school that was graded as ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted in June 2018. A copy of the report is available on the website. The school in 2021 is now in a much stronger position than in 2018 following investment in the building and successful recruitment of high-quality professionals. We remain ‘Dedicated to Excellence’ as we strive to implement and embed the changes needed to become outstanding. I therefore strongly believe this is a fabulous time to join an ambitious, rapidly improving school that places the children firmly at the heart of the decisions that it takes.

Please follow us on social media and don’t forget to visit our Open Evening.

I look forward to meeting you on Tuesday 28th September 2021 from 5.00 pm - 7.30 pm.

Mr P Scarborough
