Dear Parent

Following further advice from the Department of Education,  Hunterhouse College will remain closed on Tuesday 17th October. This is due to the continued risk posed by weather resulting from Hurricane Ophelia.

AQE and GL Assessment Familiarisation Morning

We will be holding a ‘familiarisation’ morning at the College on Saturday 21st October for candidates taking the AQE, GL or both assessments.

There will be three separate presentations as shown below and we would ask that you attend only the presentation that is relevant for you and your child.

9.15 a.m.              children taking AQE Assessment only

10.00 a.m.           children taking GL Assessment only

10.45 a.m.           children taking both AQE and GL Assessment *

* As we expect large numbers to be attending the 10.45 a.m. session, I would ask that, if possible, children are accompanied by only one parent for this meeting.

At these meetings you will hear further information about the organisation and arrangements for these assessment.  You will also be given the opportunity to meet with some of the Hunterhouse College staff who will be present during the assessments.  Your child will have the opportunity to see the room where he or she will be working.

If you would like any further information or need any questions answered, please contact the College directly.  We look forward to meeting you and your child.

Learn to identify and manage your ‘emotional’ mind with positive impact.

The Calm Harm app has been developed to help young people manage the urge to self-harm. The app is based on clinical evidence and aims to support young people, either as part of on-going treatment, or as an interim measure while they wait for specialist help. The app is password-protected and there is a helpful summary of progress as well as helping users identify triggers. http://www.stem4.org.uk/calmharm/
