Year 7 students proudly showed their parents the work they have completed since joining secondary school.
Families took the opportunity to visit Nightingale Academy, in Edmonton, to see how their children are settling in, to look at their work and to meet their teachers. The annual Meet the Tutors event also enables families and the school to continue building close links for the benefit of students and their development.

Alec Laing, assistant vice principal, said: “This is a very informal opportunity for students to showcase the work they have completed since they joined Nightingale in September. “We were pleased to have such a good turnout and for parents to be impressed with the work which has already been done. They were also pleased with the feedback they received from teachers.”
During the event, parents also found out more about the online maths homework system and the Accelerated Reader scheme.
A parent questionnaire completed on the day also revealed 98 per cent of students are happy at Nightingale.
