This event will take place on 18/03/2020.
As indicated in my letter to you in February, from September 2020, all students in the current Year 8 will have a curriculum that includes English, mathematics, science, geography, history, a modern foreign language, philosophy and ethics, physical education and PSHCEe.
In addition to this, and to increase their curriculum experience, they will need to make a choice to follow three additional subjects from the following list:
Art (Fine & Photography combined), business, computing & ICT (combined), design & technology, dance, drama, engineering, food & nutrition, media, music, sport science.
Choices should be made based on personal interest, potential for success and with an eye to the future. At this relatively early age, it is vital that students keep their range of subjects as open as possible and we would urge them to have breadth in their curriculum.
We are very much of the opinion that maintaining a wide range of subjects, for as long as possible, will offer our students the best possible education in our ever-changing world. There is a great deal of career advice and employability information on the school website found under the Student tab.
Between Friday 13 March from 4pm until Wednesday 18 March until 4pm, they will have only one chance to complete the form. The choices will not be allocated on a first come first served basis and will be looked at in terms of the order that subjects are chosen. Please encourage your child to choose carefully and to avoid missing the deadline.
