Non-Feeder School Pupils’ Evening 

This is for pupils and their parents/carers, who are starting at Clyst Vale in Year 7 in September 2018 from schools outside our catchment. It gives the pupils the opportunity to meet other students in the same position.

This event starts at 5.30pm and will take about an hour.

We will have some of this year’s Year 7 students coming to help, who were all in the same position last year.

A separate letter is sent out, about 2 weeks before the event inviting you to attend.  You can confirm your attendance by emailing Claire Phillips () or by telephoning on 01392 463919.
