Having Chosen Drayton Manor
Parents and students of the new Year 7 intake are invited to attend a meeting at the school where the school philosophy, expectations, the Home School Agreement and routines are explained.
Introducing Students to the School
Before new students start in September they are invited into Drayton Manor. During this time they meet the Head of Year, tutors and other teachers and take part in some lessons. Early in the autumn term parents are invited to the school to meet with the tutor and senior staff to discuss their child's progress. Later, spread over the year, there is a progress check, a full parents' evening and a formal report on each student's progress.
