Year 11 Parents Evening – Thursday 12th October 2023

Year 11 Parents Evening – Thursday 12th October 2023
September 26, 2023 Belinda Gosling

Dear Parents/Carers,

We would like to invite students and parents of Year 11 to a hybrid Parents Evening on Thursday 12th October 2023.

In order to accommodate everyone’s preferences, we are offering a hybrid approach for this coming parents’ evening, whereby you can make face to face appointments if you prefer, or video call appointments.  In order for this system to be successful, it will be more important than ever to remain on schedule and not overrun with appointments.

If you have chosen video appointments this will be an opportunity to meet via video link with subject teachers to discuss the progress of students. There’s nothing to download or install – simply login to the system prior to the start of your first appointment.  Each appointment will last 5 minutes (with an automatic cut off after this time) and will be carried out via video call.

If a face to face appointment is required please book a video call appointment and at the end of each appointment booking ensure you leave a message in the ‘Appointment Message’ box to say you will be attending school in person.

Appointments will be available between 3.30pm and 6.30pm and can be booked using the Parents Evening System online, via the School website as normal (HDHS website), from Thursday 28th September at 9.00am. The deadline for booking appointments is Thursday 12th October 2023 at 9.00am.

Please use this link to access more information re attending your video appointments (Parent guide)

If you are unable to access the HDHS website to make your appointments please telephone the school reception and someone will be able to help you.

In addition, during the evening onsite (in the KZ area), the Director of Sixth Form and student ambassadors will be available if you’d like to find out more about what’s on offer at Harwich and Dovercourt Sixth Form College. We hope this will support your progress conversations with subject staff and help students to set goals for their next steps. We will of course be hosting our College Open Event as well when you can find out far more about each subject on offer on Thursday 2nd November.

Kind regards,

Mrs C Simpson
