Information evening –

This event is aimed at those in school who may be involved in referring students to Malden Oaks, so Heads of Year, Heads of Key Stage, Inclusion Managers, SENCos – but any interested staff and other professionals are welcome.

Address: The Dukes Centre, Dukes Avenue, Kingston KT2 5QY

There is a certain amount of parking on site, but also plenty of unrestricted parking in the surrounding roads.

We are aware that there have been staff changes in some schools and also that our provision has expanded and developed recently. This meeting is an opportunity for us to update you on our referral processes and the details of our curriculum offer for KS3, KS4 as well as our Outreach Programmes. We would also welcome your ideas and views regarding future developments.

This is not an open evening as such, but there will be an opportunity to look around the premises for those that are interested.
