Year 8 Options Evening

Last week we invited all our Year 8 students with parents/carers to find out more about their GCSE options.

This is a crucial time in a student’s education as they prepare to choose subjects and courses that they want to study for their GCSE or BTEC qualifications, and explore their potential pathways during the next three years and beyond.

We welcomed more than 300 people into our hall where Mr Williams, our Deputy Head, was able to present to parents about how the options process works.

Students and parents/carers were then given the opportunity to talk to subject teachers and colleges, along with stalls about our Duke of Edinburgh programme and our parent engagement apps we have recently launched.

Attendance to this evening was 92%!!!!! It was fantastic to see so many people attending the evening and meant that the school was overflowing with excitement.

All our efforts in organising this event were well rewarded and hope that all those whom attended felt the same.

For any students who were unable to attend the evening, they should have already collected an Options Form and Booklet from Mr Wiams or Mr Rashid.

Options forms must be returned to Mr Williams’ Office on Level 4 by 3pm Friday 31st January. Please take your time to choose.
