Amalgamation Decision

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am delighted to announce that today Councillor Edgar has made the decision that the Crestwood and Quilley amalgamation will go ahead from September 2016.

This is a very exciting time for us all and I am very much looking forward to leading the new school. I am offering Quilley parents the chance to come and meet with myself and the senior team. This will be an informal opportunity to raise any queries that you may have. Dates are as follows:-

  • Year 7 parents on Tuesday 12 April 2016 from 3.00-5.00pm
  • Year 8 parents at Year 8 Options Evening on Wednesday 20 April 2016 from 6.30-8.00pm
  • Year 9 parents at Year 9 Options Evening on Wednesday 13 April 2016 from 6.30-8.00pm
  • Year 10 parents on Tuesday 19 April 2016 from 3.00-5.00pm

Due to the fact that nothing will be changing with the education provision for students at Crestwood, I am not offering specific dates and times for Crestwood parents. However, if you do wish to meet with me or a member of the Senior Leadership Team, please email my PA, Justine Sayers, on to arrange an appointment.

I would like to thank you all for your incredible support and positivity during this period of uncertainty
and look forward to a successful future together as one school.

Yours sincerely

Krista Dawkins
