Over the following months, your son/daughter will be selecting the courses that they wish to continue to study throughout Key Stage 4. During this time, they will receive information and guidance from their progress tutor, their teachers and hopefully from you. Students and parents can also discuss options linked to specific careers with our careers advisors at the parental information evenings on Tuesday 28th February and Thursday 2nd March. We have allocated a parental evening for you to attend (based on teaching bands) but if this day is inconvenient, please attend on the alternative evening.
Information about all of the Key Stage 4 courses is in the options booklet that is available on the academy website (paper copies can be provided on request). I would advise all students and parents to read through this information over the coming weeks. Choosing the correct combination of subject options is an important step and reading through the course outlines will assist in this respect.
The options process is outlined below:
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting Mr Tyrie (Assistant Principal Key Stage 4), Mr Jenks (Assistant Principal Key Stage 3) or me, here at the academy.
