Don't miss Year 5 open evening at Invicta Grammar School

Invicta Grammar School will be holding a Year 5 open evening on Monday 20 May 2019, from 6pm to 8pm, which will provide important and practical information around the transition from primary school to secondary school.

Headteacher, Mrs Julie Derrick, said: “This event is aimed at Year 5 girls and their parents who are starting to think about which secondary school might be right for them.  During the evening, we give them a practical experience of what it’s like to be in a grammar school, to help them make the right choice moving forward.  Thinking about the next stage of education can be daunting for both children and parents, so we hope this event will provide really valuable and practical information, help allay any concerns and lend a hand with the decision making process.”

The open evening starts with an input from Mrs Derrick and two Invicta Grammar School students focusing on the reasons to choose a grammar school, information around the Kent Test (11+) and tips for students and parents to help them decide whether or not to take the test.

The evening is finished off with a 45-minute practical lesson, across a range of subjects, to give a first-hand feel of the school.

Mrs Derrick added: “The Year 5 open evening is a great way for girls and their parents to find out more about the next stage of education to ensure they make a decision that is right for them, and which will see them really enjoy their experience throughout secondary school, and achieve their full potential.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible to Invicta Grammar School on 20 May, so they can see exactly what we have to offer our future students.”
