Year 9 Options

Year 9 Options Evening Information

I would like to confirm the process and key dates that are part of the Year 9 Options Process. Following the Year 9 Parents Evening you should have a good idea of the subjects that your child is succeeding in at the Academy currently. This information should be used when picking the GCSE subjects for your child in Key Stage 4.

I am delighted to be able to invite you in for Options Evening this year. The evening will consist of a presentation from myself on the Key Stage 4 curriculum for your child and how the options process will work this year. This letter is accompanied with details of the curriculum that will be taught in Key Stage 4 and Subject Flyers for each option available this year. Please read through this information and have a look at the videos we have uploaded onto the academy website that has the teachers detailing the course expectations of each option subject.

 

Once my presentation has concluded you and your child will get to speak to the subject leaders at the school to talk through the options that your child is considering for Year 10 and 11. This is a time for you to get the qualification requirements and expectations and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions that have come from a result of your research into the different subjects. This event will take place on Wednesday 16th March 2022 between 17:30 and 18:30.

 

We ask that the options form is returned to the Academy reception by Friday 1st April 2022.

 

I would like to remind all students that they need to continue to engage and work hard in the subjects they are not considering for the remainder of Year 9 as these may be subjects they wish to move to in Year 10 if there options choices do not work out.

 

If you are your child have any questions about this process of the options they have been given please contact me on gdoward@daubeneyacademy.co.uk.
