You will have the opportunity to discuss your son/daughter’s transition and ask any questions you might have in the early stages of the time with us at Norton College. If I could ask that you have your son/daughters' planner with you, as there will be an opportunity to discuss effective use of this and the recording of home learning.
There will be a presentation from Tim Johnson our Headteacher and Sam Stones, Assistant Headteacher. The presentations will be held at 4.30pm and 6.30pm which can be accessed through THIS link. This presentation will last approximately 20 minutes. Year 7 appointments with mentors should be made either before or after this time slot.
