Meet the Parents - informal forums for parents 

Meet the Parents are running some June 2024 events for parents of primary pupils who are moving up to secondary school. This will allow parents and carers to ask frank questions from other families - including current secondary students and their parents - and combine this with getting information directly from schools at the Camden Moving On event on 13 June (see above). The MTP events, held at local primary schools in June, are:

  • 4 June - Kentish Town C of E Primary School from 6.30pm
  • 11 June - Fitzjohn's Primary School from 6.30pm
  • 18 June - Yerbury Primary School (Islington borough) from 6.30pm
  • 19 June - Brookfield Primary School from 6.30pm.

MTP will be putting on more events in September, staring the week of 9 September so watch this space.
