Year 8 Options Evening


30 January 2019

Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Year 8 Options Evening

As you are aware, Year 8 students will begin their Key Stage 4 courses in September 2019.

We are moving our Key Stage 4 subject options choices and Curriculum Evening to 15 July 2019 instead of the originally publicised date in March 2019. The decision to move the Key Stage 4 Curriculum Evening has been taken so that students can study the wide range of Key Sage 3 subjects in greater depth before making their GCSE choices.

In July students will be asked to choose their options by ranking their subject preferences. Students will be assigned to a subject in the order they are received by the Academy and after their suitability for the course has been reviewed by the Curriculum Leaders. The number of classes in each subject will depend upon the resources available and the number of staff available to teach it.

To facilitate this change PP6 Quantitative report will now be issued on 10 July 2019.

Please sign page 30 in your child's planner to confirm receipt of this letter.

Yours faithfully
