Year 9 Parent/Options Meeting

We are pleased to invite you to a meeting to be held between 3:45 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. on Tuesday 18th March 2014 in the main school hall. At 4.00 p.m. Mr Alcock will do a short presentation regarding the process of your child choosing their options for GCSE and other external examinations.

Following the presentation you will have the opportunity to talk to your child’s individual subject teachers about the progress made so far; to discuss strategies that may need to be implemented to bring about further progress and to also enable you to make informed decisions about the courses to be followed next year.


Appointment sheets have been issued to all pupils so they can agree times to meet with individual subject teachers. Please encourage your child to complete their appointment sheets.

On arrival you will be allocated a member of the senior leadership team with whom you can discuss further your child’s option choices.

Your child will be given an options booklet to share with you which will include the option blocks and information on the different subjects available for study. Accompanying this letter is an EBacc brochure, which will be discussed in the presentation. Please take the opportunity to read through both documents.

Mr B Morley

Assistant Vice Principal
