Future Schools Information Evening

Duncombe prides itself in the provision and guidance allocated to pupils and parents on the hot topic of secondary school selections and entry. To this end, there was a “Future Schools Evening” held on Thursday 26th January.

Parents had the opportunity to hear from the Deputy Head, Head of Learning, Head of English and Head of Maths, exactly what we do as a school to ensure our pupils are ready to embark upon the next stage of their educational journey; be it within the state or independent sectors. Alongside detailed guidance on both the academic and pastoral provision, parents were also treated to the first-hand experiences of our guest speakers – three of Duncombe’s ex-pupils. Also present was Michelle Metcalfe, the Head of Admissions at Haileybury, who shared some invaluable tips about the whole admissions process from a secondary school’s point of view.

A booklet, containing pertinent information on all the secondary schools in the local area was given out (this can also be found on our website) and a Frequently Asked Questions section will also be made available, to give guidance to those parents who were unable to attend the session
