Year 11

Dear Parents/Carers,

Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of our current year 11 students. The cohort have matured and thrived through their exam period and this is testament to the support and guidance you have provided. As the students have nearly sat all of their exams we move our attention to celebrating their’ achievements and success throughout their time at Durrington. This is done through three events that take place over the extended summer break. 

Leavers’ Assembly – Wednesday 26th June

  • Students are to arrive at school in their full school uniform by 2.00 pm and go to their normal tutor bases 
  • At 2.10 students will be brought down to the main hall by their form tutor for their final Durrington High School assembly. This will run until 3.00pm 
  • At 3.00 students will move to the gym, where they will collect their Summer Ball ticket and sign their leavers documents. This will only happen once all library books and school equipment has been returned. A separate email will be sent to make sure you know if your child has overdue books that need to be handed back to the library. 
  • If your child cannot attend the leavers’ assembly their ticket will be on the door of the Summer Ball with Mrs Temple, to be collected on arrival at the event.
  • At this stage students will be able to sign their shirts and donate any uniform they do not want back to the school- ties and blazers.
  • At 3.15 all students will leave the school site via the front or back entrance, ensuring they have emptied their lockers and taken their padlocks with them.

Summer Ball – Thursday 27th June

  • The Summer Ball is once again being held at the Avisford Park Hilton Hotel, Arundel on Thursday 27th June 2024 from 18:30-22:00. The ball will be hosted in the Grand Hall at the far end of the hotel building.
  • Students should arrive at the venue from 18:30. Parents and carers are welcome to be present at the hotel for their arrival and should park in the main hotel car park and walk around to the link way lawn, down towards the Grand Hall area. The formal part of the evening will start at 19:00.
  • The Summer Ball ends at 22:00. All students will need to have arranged transport and have left the venue by 22:00.

GCSE results day – Thursday 22th August

  • Students will be able to collect their GCSE results from 10:00am.
  • Further information about the day will come out via Mrs Parkes at a later date.

Thank you for your continued support throughout your childs’ time at Durrington High School. Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to wish our 2023/24 year 11 students all the very best in their future endeavours.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Temple 

Assistant Headteacher
