More Able Evening 2023
The More Able Evening was the perfect opportunity for the parents of students aiming for Grade 7-9 or As and A*s to improve their awareness of the steps they must take to ensure their children reach their maximum academic potential.
From Year 7 to Year 12, this evening has always been effective in providing an insight into the resources and opportunities that are available to us, so we can really push ourselves into achieving the top grades. I particularly enjoyed the keynote speech from a former student, Jasleen Kapoor. She provided us with a story of the journey into her career - this was enlightening and showed us that even if our performance in school is not perfect, there is always another route we can take to reach our final goal. Mr Ghataura gave a talk on how parents can support the younger students in staying focused on their academics, but also setting achievable and realistic goals. For Key Stage 4 and 5, we had the opportunity to talk to ex-Heston students and received valuable advice on how to revise efficiently and how to balance social and academic life.
Overall, the evening was educational and provided a clear understanding of how parents and their children can work in tandem with each other to achieve the best that they can.
