Year 9 options
Important deadlines in the year 9 options process for 2018 are:
- Thursday 1 February - options evening (6.00pm-7.00pm)
- Friday 9 February - deadline for returning provisional options forms to tutors
- From 19 February - one-to-one interviews with all students about their option choices
- Friday 23 March - deadline for returning option confirmation form
We aim for all students to make informed decisions about their year 9 options. Over the next few weeks, students will be involved in a number of activities aimed at guiding them through the process. They will receive a great deal of information and advice, they will discuss with subject teachers what each course involves as well as where certain qualifications may lead to in the future. If you have any questions regarding the options process, please contact main reception on 0116 282 4326.
On Thursday 1 February, the year 9 options evening will begin with a brief talk in the main hall by Mr Hague and following that there will be an opportunity to meet subject leaders to discuss courses in more depth, allowing for informed option choices to be made. On this evening, the options booklet and form will also be given out. For these reasons, we strongly encourage all parents and students in year 9 to attend.
