Letter to Parents 12th Sept 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

It was lovely to welcome all the new year 7s to KPHS last week, they had a great week and didn’t get lost too much! All the staff have been very impressed with how well they have settled in.

Couple of dates for your diaries and a few reminders:

School closed Monday 19th September

Following the announcement from Buckingham Palace of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II the government has announced a bank holiday for Monday 19th September. School will be closed all day. Pupils should return to school on Tuesday 20th September.

Open Evening

Open evening will take place on Thursday 6th October between 5.00 pm - 7.00 pm.

Year 7 settling in evening

This evening will take place on Thursday 13th October from 3.30 pm-5.30 pm and is an opportunity for year 7 parents and carers to meet their child’s form tutor.
