Year 9 Subject Consultation & Curriculum Choices Evening – Tuesday 12th February

We would like to invite Year 9 parents and students to our combined Curriculum Choices and Subject Consultation Evening on Tuesday 12th February. Year 9 students are about to enter a significant phase in their education and when they commence their GCSE courses in September it is our aim to ensure that they makes fully informed decisions, to ensure they achieve to the fullest extent of their potential.

The consultation evening will be the formal launch of the process. The evening will include a presentation in the Wyvern hall highlighting the key elements of the process and explaining the curriculum on offer. The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes and take place at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.  Students must therefore ensure that they do not book appointments during the slot in which you plan to attend. This will run concurrently with an opportunity to discuss potential choices as well as current progress with subject teachers.

On the evening, your child will receive the choices booklet, which will explain the content and construction of the Key Stage 4 Curriculum. You will be able to take this away with you and examine the detailed information about the GCSE courses offered.  Senior members of staff and tutors will also be available during the evening to discuss any queries you may have.

The final deadline for submitting the Choices Curriculum form is Wednesday 27rd February.  This will allow time between the evening and the deadline for any further support you and your child may require. Your child’s tutor will be able to offer support and guidance throughout the process supported by her Head of Year and senior staff.

Yours Sincerely

Mr Daniel Jeffries

Deputy Head teacher
