Mind the Gap – for Y6 parents

Mind the Gap – for Y6 parents

We know that the move from primary to secondary school is a big change that affects the whole family, and that the parents of the students we work with probably have a few worries and questions too!

That’s why we offer expert support to Y6 parents, as well as their children.

If you’re a parent of a Y6 student, please come along to our special evening on 11 June. It comes highly recommended by last year’s attendees.

The details

When: Tuesday 11 June 2019, 7–8:30pm
Where: The lecture theatre at St Crispin’s School, London Road, Wokingham, RG40 1SS
