Year 9 Options 2024

On Thursday 21st March, between 5pm and 8pm, we will be holding our Year 9 Options Evening which aims to provide you with the opportunity to meet with all of your child’s subject teachers as well as those whom they haven’t had contact with in Key Stage 3. This will be an opportunity for you and your child to discuss subject content.

At the start of the evening Mr Preston, Headteacher, will hold a short presentation at the start of the evening to set the scene and to ensure that all students are able to make fully informed decisions about the GCSE options available for them to study in Year 10.

After this your child will have a map indicating where all the subjects are situated as they will not necessarily be in their teaching rooms.
