Headteachers Welcome

Thank you for your interest in The Latymer School; choosing your child’s secondary school is one of the most important decisions you take as a parent and it is important that you are well informed.

The Open Evening will give you the opportunity to meet with Senior Staff both in an informal and formal setting, as there will be optional presentations during the evening, there will also be guided tours of the school which will include presentations and displays by individual departments.

For you, the most important part of the evening is seeing the school, talking to staff and students. If you are unable to fit the Senior Leadership and Student Presentations in to your visit, please do not worry they will also be available on the school website after the Open Evenings.

We look forward to meeting you and hope you will find the evening helpful in deciding the next stage of your child’s education.

Mrs Maureen Cobbett, Headteacher
