GCSE Choices booklet

14 December 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

We are quickly approaching the time that students need to be thinking about and choosing GCSE options for the beginning of Year 10. The form containing your child’s GCSE options choices is due to be returned to the school by 27/1/22.

An electronic link to the form is below and needs to be completed by 27/1/22.

Hard copies are available from your child’s PSHE teacher.  If you do complete a hard copy, please ensure that it is returned to your child’s form tutor.

Mr Watson has kindly made a narrated PowerPoint explaining the process which I suggest you and your child look at, by following the YouTube link below:

On the 5th and 6th January there are Parents’ evenings which will be conducted remotely via Edulink. This will present an opportunity to discuss options choices with subject teachers for both you and your child.  The exception to this would be Business or Economics which are not studied at Key Stage 3.  Instead, four teachers (Miss Purcell, Mr Twizell, Mr Shibli and Mr Nagra) will be available for 5-minute appointments to discuss Business and Economics.  (Only one appointment would be necessary as all four teachers can discuss both subjects within one appointment.)

If you have any questions or concerns then contact should be made with your child’s subject teacher if it is subject related, or please contact myself or Mr Watson for any issues regarding the process.

Yours faithfully

Mr Adkins

Head of Year 9
