Messages to Parents

Hello everyone. Over the course of the last half term Year 9 have been working hard in lessons and have taken the steps to gather as much information as possible about potential option choices they would like to elect into for their Year 10 and 11 GCSE years.

In doing so, this has enabled Year 9 to successfully complete their option choices to study in Year 10 and 11. Students will be notified in due course if there have been any slight changes we have had to make to option choices / subjects.

If you do have any questions about your child, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your child’s mentor in the first instance or myself.

Miss Humphries Head of Year 9
