Our current Year 11 will commence the process of making their options for Year 12. This will be supported in school with a range of sessions for the whole of the current Y11 within their tutor time and on an individual basis.
We would like you to be part of this process by attending our Y 11 Options Information Afternoon on Wednesday 11th November from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. This is an opportunity to understand our wide curriculum offer in Upper School and the different paths that our students can follow at Island School in order to fulfill their higher educational aspirations.
The afternoon is organised as follows:
|2.30 – 3.30 p.m. Welcome – Hall||● The Curriculum Coordinators will detail the Options Process.
● The IB and Applied Learning Pathways will be explained.
|3.30 – 5.00 p.m.||● Visits to different curriculum areas to find out more about the courses on offer.
● Senior Leadership Team and House staff will be available to answer questions.
|5.00 – 5.30 p.m.||● Q/A if necessary with Senior Leaders|
Students will be required to enter a first round of options by Wednesday 18th November on the Gateway. This initial choice will not be binding as the final options will not be completed until the 29th January 2016.
Please note that there will be NO PARKING available.
We hope that you will be able to join us as this will assist our students and yourselves in making decisions tailored to the unique needs of all our Y11s.
We have organised an additional Year 11 options talk on Tuesday, 10th November from 3.30 to 4.30pm in the Hall. This session is for those families celebrating Diwali on Wednesday 11th November. This additional Tuesday session will be the same as the one that will take place on the Wednesday. The only difference is that the opportunity to go round departments and talk to teachers will only be available on Wednesday.
However, for individual subject information, we will have our Year 11 Parent Consultation on 24th November if parents wish to get more details. We can also set up any necessary additional individual consultations.
I would like to apologise to those who celebrate Diwali for the inconvenience and confusion caused by this inadvertent mistake.
