Year 7 (September 2023) Open Evening – Thursday 13 October 2022 (date for your diaries)

To: All Parents of Year 6 Children

Dear Parents and Children


THURSDAY 13 OCTOBER 2022, 6.15 pm

On behalf of the Governors, staff and students, I am writing to invite you to the Open Evening for Year 6 children and their parents which will be held at Arthur Mellows Village College on Thursday 13 October 2022. 

Please note that the doors for this event will not open before 6.15 pm to allow departments time to be ready.

Arthur Mellows Village College is justifiably proud of the 'Outstanding' Ofsted status we hold which was reinforced in our last inspection.  We are also delighted to announce excellent GCSE, A Level and Vocational results this Summer and the staff and students are keen for you to visit us on one of the most important dates in the academic year.

The evening is designed for parents and their children who will be commencing secondary education in September 2023.  The format of the evening is that the Head of College will make presentations at 6.30 pm and 7.15 pm and will be accompanied by a selection of students from various Year Groups.  As this evening generates a high degree of interest, the Presentations are likely to be extremely busy and seating will be limited.  Parking is also at a premium.

When touring the College, families will be free to walk around at their leisure and will be provided with an opportunity to view various departments, speak with subject teachers and Year 6 students will be invited to participate in department based activities.

The Senior Leadership Team and many other staff will be available throughout the evening to answer any questions you may have. 

We look forward to meeting you on the evening.

J Oakley

Head of College
