GCSE Options Information Evening
I am pleased to invite you and your son/daughter to our Year 8 Options Information Evening on Thursday 30 April from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. You will be asked to attend a short presentation from the Headteacher (Mr Hillyard) and Assistant Headteacher (Mrs Hawkins) and then to visit different Departments to discuss courses with subject specialist teaching staff.
This evening will be an opportunity to learn more about the options process and recent curriculum and examination changes that affect Year 8. Choosing the correct options to study at GCSE is an important time in your child’s school career. You will have the opportunity to speak to teachers from the various subject options and ask any questions you may have. You will also have the opportunity to speak to our Careers Adviser, Naomi Rogers.
I attach the Options Booklet which contains full details of subjects on offer to students, this is also available on our school website. Individual option forms will be issued at the information evening for completion and return by Friday 15 May 2020.
Please ensure you attend the allotted slot at the time below for your presentations to ensure we are not overcrowded in the Main Hall.
