Students in Year 9 are beginning to select the qualifications they will study through Key Stage 4.
The process is designed to ensure that every student is on an appropriate pathway to support them in choosing options which maximise their achievement and opportunities for the future. It is an exciting and important time in the education of these young people as they begin to make choices for themselves to help shape their future lives. Key dates in this process are given below:
Monday 21st January – Options and careers talks. These explain the process to students and how they can be confident that the choices they make will support their future plans. Students will be issued with a booklet which explains the pathway they are on and the options available to them.
Wednesday 30th January – Y9 Open Evening. This is an opportunity for students and their parents or carers to hear more about the options process and the individual qualifications on offer.
Thursday 7th February – Y9 Parents’ Evening. In addition to feedback on progress, this gives an opportunity for parents and carers to ask about the suitability of particular qualifications for their child.
Friday 15th February – Deadline for completion of the options form.
