Key Stage 4 Options Evening

The Key Stage 4 Options Evening will take place in the Main Hall on Thursday 28th January. Year 9 parents are invited to attend one of the two sessions which will run as follows:

  • Session 1: 5.30pm
  • Session 2: 6.30pm

There will be a short presentation followed by the opportunity to ask questions with members of the senior leadership team. Each session will take approximately 30 minutes.

You may be aware that due to building work the school only has a single track drive in operation. To avoid congestion, can I request that parents attending the early session leave promptly, and parents attending the second session do not arrive too early. You may wish to consider parking in the top carpark and walking down.

Please do not hesitate to contact either Mr I. Dyson or the Head of Progress, Mrs S. Burnell, if you have any queries.

Y Pant Sixth Form Committee

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 15.28.32

Children in Need took place on Friday and as always the Sixth Form took part in their annual fancy dress. This year, myself and another student decided to attend as bags of Jelly Beans, which gained a lot of praise on the day so I believe it was a success. Children in Need is one of the best times for the Sixth Form to get together and really contribute to the fundraising done by Y Pant every year. When I started in the Sixth Form last year, a Sixth Form Committee was set up in order to build a team that was engaged in school events and also wanted to have a strong role in the fundraising for the Year 13 Prom. The committee, for the second year, has enjoyed being a part of Children in Need and we are amazed by the incredible £2500 that Y Pant raised this year! We were overwhelmed by the response to the tuck shop this year and once again, it proved successful at both break and lunch. Additionally, the Sixth Form were involved with the running of the activities at lunch including face painting, basketball and helping out with the photo booth; all of which proved to be a lot of fun!

The Sixth Form Committee aims to organise events for the younger years of Y Pant as we have all gone through starting at comprehensive and we know that there is not a great deal of entertainment in our locality. Recently we organised a Halloween Disco for Year 7 and 8, which was held at the drama studio at the school. This was great fun and the response we had was very positive and I know that many of the students would like there to be more. Therefore, I am hoping to use the school website as a way to communicate the new events organised by the Sixth Form Committee, so keep a look out!
