Each year, around this time we would normally host our 'Year 9 Options Evening’ event, whereby we would invite our Year 9 students, parents and carers into to school for an evening of presentations from our Headteacher and subject leads. The evening, as the title suggests, is aimed at equipping you, as a family, with the tools and knowledge to make informed decisions ahead of the deadline for GCSE options.
With current restrictions (Jan 2020) it is not possible to host the evening, so instead, our staff have kindly agreed to give their presentations virtually, explore below for your subjects and take in as much information as you can to help support you through the year.
To support each student in order for them to make informed decisions, we have:
1. Developed a GCSE guidance booklet, which has been designed to give a short but informative summary for every subject we offer.
2. Ensured that your child’s tutor will be available through email to provide personalised support.
3. Organised assemblies to deliver some key information and launch the process on Wednesday 31st March.
4. Allocated time in the ACHIEVE curriculum to focus on careers.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with your child’s tutor in the first instance.
