Dear Parent / Guardian, 

It is a really important time in the calendar for Year 9 as they move closer towards Key Stage 4. I am writing to share information about two key upcoming events. Students will be introduced to the options process this week during a series of assemblies, and teaching staff will talk to students about the different subjects available during lessons.  


There have been a number of changes to qualifications over recent few years and I’d like to invite you to a short presentation at the Academy on Monday 16th March at 5pm to give an overview of the curriculum and go through the options process. An options booklet will be available for you to take away.  

I’d also like to invite you to parents evening on 26th March 2015 between 5pm and 7pm. Student reports will be issued and it is an opportunity to discuss progress with teaching staff and also ask questions about Year 9 options. Letters will follow shortly with further details.

I hope you are able to join us on both occasions. Should you have any queries or concerns please contact me directly.  

Kind Regards 

 
Mr J Alcock
Assistant Principal
