Parents

Autumn Term

We host a number of events throughout the Autumn Term to which prospective parents and students are warmly invited.  The key events are highlighted below.  For exact details of dates and times, please refer to our Calendar.

Year 7 Transition

The first day of the Autumn Term each year, we invite students from Years 7 and 12 only.  This gives new students a whole day to refamiliarize themselves with the layout of the school, the format of the school day and start to settle in and get to know their peers, without the pressure of older students being around.  Students will also receive their iPad on their first day.

Later in the Autumn Term (usually October) we also hold an Evening for Year 7 parents to help answer any questions they may have about the school day, our system of positive discipline, homework expectations, as well as the pastoral support available.

Year 12 Transition

Year 12 starts with an initial induction day.  As with Year 7, this gives students the time and opportunity to re-familarise themselves with the layout of the school, the format of the school day, collect and log onto their iPad and start to build new friendships.  Towards the end of the first month, we hold a second induction day with a focus on team-building.

We also hold an Evening in mid-September for Year 12 parents and students to help answer any questions they may have about life and study in Sixth Form, which does differ in a number of ways to study in Years 7-11.

Main School Open Evening

Usually held in late September or early October, this is a great opportunity for prospective parents and students in Years 5 and 6 to visit the School, hear from the Headteacher, Mr Williams, meet staff and students, tour the school campus and find out all we have to offer those considering joining us in September of the following year.

Year 7 Applications

Applications to join Malton School in Year 7 are made via the North Yorkshire County Council website.  The application window opens in early September, and applications must be received via the website by 31 October of Year 6.  For more information, please visit: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/apply-place-primary-or-secondary-school

Sixth Form Open Evening

The Sixth Form Open Evening takes place in early November each year.  Hosted by the Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form, the evening provides prospective Year 10 and Year 11 students and their parents with the opportunity to visit the School, see our facilities as well as talk to subject staff and current Sixth Formers.

SPRING TERM

The Spring Term is another key one for prospective students, but also includes one of the highlights of the school year – the annual show.  Below is a brief introduction to the events.  For exact details of dates and times, please refer to our Calendar.

Sixth Form Taster Days

The Spring Term starts with the Sixth Form Taster Days – two days spent by Year 11 students in Sixth Form, engaging with A level and BTEC lessons, being introduced to life in Sixth Form and finding out more about study post 16.  It also provides an opportunity for students to explore subjects they may not otherwise have considered studying or subjects that aren’t offered at GCSE.  Year 11 students from both Malton School and other local secondary schools are invited to attend.

Year 12 Applications

Unlike the Year 7 process, applications to Sixth Form are made directly with school, again through an online process.  The application window opens at the end of the Sixth Form Open Evening and whilst we accept applications up to the start of the Autumn Term of Year 12, we ask that all requests to join us be made by 31 January each year.  This enables us to review all applications and finalise option blocks.

Year 7 Appeals

North Yorkshire Council notifies parents of Year 7 secondary school place allocations at the start of March each year.  For the past few years we have been oversubscribed, which means that not all families who request Malton School are offered a place.  If you are unsuccessful, there is an independent appeals process, further details of which can be found on the NYC website: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/appeal-school-place

School Show

Every year just before Easter, students from all Years in school put on a professional stage show.  In the past students have performed shows as diverse as Fame and Little Shop of Horrors.  The 4-night extravaganza involves students at every stage  – from selling programmes at the door, to performing on stage, taking on backstage roles as well as providing the music in our very own pit orchestra.  It’s a great opportunity for students to practice their skills, grow in confidence and work as a team.  Tickets for shows are available to buy from West Wing Reception.

SUMMER TERM

The final term of the School Year is an opportunity to plan and prepare for the upcoming year as new students look to join the school and existing students prepare to move on.  The key events are outlined below.  For exact details of dates and times, please refer to our Calendar.

Year 12 Pre-Registration Day

In late June, all prospective Year 12 students are invited to Sixth Form to meet their subject teachers, tutors and fellow students and begin the process of transition to Sixth Form.  As part of this, students are encouraged to undertake preparatory work for each subject over the summer and in advance of starting their studies in September.

School Open Day

In early July every year, the School hosts an Open Day when prospective parents and students in Years 5 and 6 can see the school in operation on a ‘normal’ school day.  Visitors are welcomed by the Head and can then take a tour of the school, guided by our students who are there to answer any questions they may have.  This provides prospective students and parents with a unique insight into the life of Malton School.

Year 5 Science Days

Every year we invite Year 5 students from local primary schools, including our feeder schools, to a day of interactive science-based activities.  These days provide a great opportunity for primary students to engage with science in a fun and hands-on way, enhancing their primary learning and for many of them giving them their first introduction to a fully-equipped science laboratory.

Year 7 Transition Days

Towards the end of the Summer Term, all students who will be joining us in Year 7 are invited to spend two days with us, meeting their form tutors, getting to know their fellow students and starting to work their way around school.  These are informal days at which students can ask questions and begin the transition to secondary school.

In addition, we host an information evening for parents and students at which there is also the opportunity to purchase school uniform in readiness for September.

GCSE Results Day

Members of the Senior Leadership and Pastoral Teams will be in school during the morning of results day to congratulate students and help them finalise their post 16 choices.  If a student is unable to be in school on the day to collect their results, arrangements can be made to email results home.  Certificates are published later in the year and given to students at the KS4/KS5 Celebration Evening.

A Level Results Day

As with GCSE Results Day, members of the Senior Leadership and Pastoral Teams will be in school during the morning of results day to congratulate students and offer advice as required to enable students to confirm their further study, apprenticeship or employment places.  If a student is unable to be in school on the day to collect their results, arrangements can be made to email results home.  Certificates are published later in the year and given to students at the KS4/KS5 Celebration Evening.
