Reading College and NCS attend Year 11 Parents' Evening

JMA hosted visits to the Year 11 Parents’ Evening by Penny Bradshaw of Reading College and representatives of the National Citizen Service. Despite the December weather, it was a busy and vibrant evening with students and parents keen to meet and discuss progress, with full turnout of Year 11 tutors.

The addition of external groups is new to Parents’ Evenings at the academy and one we intend to repeat. Amy Owen and Alex Moore of the NCS were delighted with the interest shown by JMA students. The National Citizen Service (NCS) is the country’s fastest-growing youth movement and is considered by many as a rite of passage for all teenagers aged 15-17.

Penny Bradshaw of Reading College had a busy evening too, providing advice and guidance on a range of apprentice schemes offered at Reading College. Penny and other representatives of the college will visit JMA in the spring term. Further information can be obtained from
