Dear Parents

Year 8 and 9 Options Information Afternoon for Students and Parents
Wednesday 29th October

Next year, your children will be in the fortunate position of having additional choices within the curriculum. To support the decision making process, a range of information and guidance sessions are planned – for year groups, tutor groups and on an individual basis.

In order for you to be equally informed and be in a position to support your child in their decisions, we would like to invite you to join us for our Year 8 and 9 Options Information Afternoon, on Wednesday 29th October. The format for the afternoon will be as follows:

2.30 – 3.30 p.m.     

Information Sessions

  • Year 8 – Sports Hall
  • Year 9 – Main Hall

3.30 -5.00 p.m.          

  • Visits to different curriculum areas to find out more about the courses on offer.
  • House Staff and members of the Senior Leadership Team will be available in the Main Hall at this time to answer any questions you may have.

In the week following these sessions, we will be asking students to fill in online options forms to give us a clearer picture of preferences and to aid us with the ensuing guidance. This will not be binding. The final options will be made in January 2014.  However, it is a good idea for students to think about their Option Choices as early as possible!

Please note that there will be NO PARKING available.

We do hope that you will be able to join us on the 29th October. In the meantime, we suggest that you visit the Island Futures website, which can be found here.

Yours sincerely

Paul Bentham

Senior Teacher – Head of Individuals and Societies
