New Intake 2016 Information

Dear Parent / Guardian

I am writing to you again in preparation for the transition events at The Windsor Boys’ School. As a new parent and pupil to the school we know this is a very exciting time, but along with that, comes a lot of information to absorb in a short amount of time.

To assist with this, guidance notes for parents of new boys have been sent out to home addresses, these include a booklet for you to keep at home and a number of forms that need to be filled in and returned to the school.

The key forms to return as soon as possible are the data and photo permission forms. The other forms can be returned when you attend the new parents evening on Monday 4th July.

The boys’ transition day is on Friday 1st July 2016. They should come to school for 09:00, in their current school uniform, meeting in the school hall. The day will finish at 15:05. During the day the boys will be allocated their houses and spend time meeting each other before going in to their CATS tests. The testing is incredibly important to ensure we get our sets correct as early as possible, so the boys can be working to the appropriate level when they join us in September.  We will also be holding a House Competition for the boys, to get them involved as soon as possible, they do not need to bring a PE kit but please ensure your son brings his trainers.

We will be providing the boys with a lunch at lunchtime, a choice of a main course, dessert and a drink. If they wish they may bring money to purchase food or drinks at break time.

The new parents evening on Monday 4th July 2016 provides you and your son with an opportunity to meet key staff and students, including both the Director and Leader of Student Progress Year 9, Dan Woods and Chris Kilkelly. In addition you will get a flavour for all the amazing opportunities we offer to our pupils at The Windsor Boys’ School, from trips to Peru and rowing at Henley to 3D printing, amazing musicals and our debating society.

There will be also be a Help Desk where staff will be on hand to answer any questions you have and a desk where you should pick up your hard copy login details for our cashless system ParentPay which enables you to pay for Lunch money, Trips, Subs, Materials, Voluntary Contributions etc.

The school uniform suppliers will be at the new parents evening as will the Friends of TWBS who will have items of second hand uniform for sale.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us 01753 716060

Best regards
