Year 9 is the time when our students really examine the subjects in the curriculum with a view to selecting their GCSE options in the spring term. A comprehensive programme of support is in place to enable students to be confident in their choices. This includes special assemblies, the Year 9 Options Evening and detailed discussions with members of staff.
Students in Year 9 continue to be encouraged to develop positive behaviours for learning through the use of a range of lunchtime homework clubs and the use of personal planners as a means of managing their own time. We also offer every student a rich variety of extra-curricular opportunities in which to get involved. These include sport, drama, dance, service to the community, and participation in school visits in the UK and abroad as well as numerous subject specific events.
Our aim is to provide a year of stimulating and exciting learning, whilst developing the skills and competencies that will lead your child to become a confident and resilient learner and member of our community.
