Dear Parent/Carer

Year 13 Information Evening 

Thursday 19th October 2023 – 5:00pm to 6:00pm

I am writing to invite you to a Year 13 Information Evening on Thursday 19th October from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. This evening is designed to provide you and your child with important information on their Academic and vocational level 3 qualifications which conclude in Summer 2024. 

The evening is a fantastic opportunity for you to gain an excellent insight into your child’s important final year at the Academy, as well as ways in which you can support their academic progress and well-being. 

The event will provide all families with the opportunity to: 

  • Receive a presentation from Mr Cowie (Head of Hawking School) on the examinations and the support package the Academy is providing  this year;
  • Discuss with the Hawking small school team about your child’s curriculum and the types of assessments they will sit in the summer of 2024;
  • Receive information regarding next steps and entry guidance;
  • Access to a variety of revision materials and guidance linked to common misconceptions and exam techniques.

The evening is an important milestone in your child’s academic journey at The Halley Academy, and it is important that you are able to attend to support your child. Please note this is a general information evening and there will not be opportunities to meet separately with teachers. If you wish to discuss anything specific we have our academy Year 13 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 25th January or you can contact the Hawking small school at 

Thank you in advance for your support with your child’s academic progress this year. If you have any further questions about the evening, please do not hesitate to contact the Hawking small school.

Yours faithfully, 

Mr James Cowie | Head of Hawking School
