Messages to Parents

This Half Term students have been looking into the GCSE option choices that will be made available for them to choose in February. As part of this process students have been given a sheet which outlines the list of option subjects to choose from. Students have been encouraged to take these sheets home and talk through the options available and the potential future educational and career routes.
