Third week of term

Third week of term

The third week of term is coming to an end, and the Kent Test, which was inevitably uppermost in many parents’ thoughts over the summer holidays, is already a distant memory. This week’s concerns have been mostly been from the Secondary end of the spectrum: thoughts turning to GCSE’s and the possible revising upwards of grade boundaries….? One family has asked if I could order books for Child Development; another, identify a tutor for French, a third to assess the English and Maths of their daughter at the start of her Year 11.

Meanwhile just outside the door, spacious vehicles successively pull into the Dover Street parking spaces to unload boxes, cases and small items of personal furniture, as the first occupants move in to the new halls of residence.
