The Year 8 Options Evening is now fast approaching and will take place on Thursday 22nd February, beginning with a presentation in the Main Hall at 6.00pm.
The options process itself will begin in the first week of February, with all Year 8 students receiving their options booklet during an options
assembly. All of the key information you need about the process is contained within the booklet. Please ensure that your child shows it to you, so that together you take the time to look through and start to consider their choices before the evening.
The evening itself will provide you with an important opportunity to hear about the process first hand. After the presentation there will be time for you and your child to discuss the subjects on offer with option teachers and curriculum leaders. The Year 8 team will also be available, should you wish to discuss any aspect of the process with them.
Following the evening you should have all of the information you need in order to support your child in making their final decisions. The deadline for those decisions is after half term, on Thursday 1st March.
In the meantime your child should be talking to their form tutor and class teachers, taking the time to thoroughly consider what are the best options for them.
If you have any questions or concerns ahead of the evening, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s form tutor or Head of Year. Otherwise we look forward to seeing you on the 22nd February.
