Dear Parents

Year 9 Parent/Teacher consultationsThursday 10th March

It is now time for your son/daughter to make choices about options for GCSE courses. Teachers of Year 9 will be available in the Hall to meet with parents between 4.30p.m. and 7.30p.m. to discuss both academic progress and possible GCSE choices. Given the significance of these choices, pupils are invited to join the discussion on this occasion.

There are two sessions available for consultation; session one is from 4.30p.m. to 6.00p.m. and session two runs from 6.00p.m. to 7.30p.m. I would be grateful if you would indicate on the attached sheet both your preferred choice of time and which members of staff you wish to see, and return to the School Office by 3rd March.

As this is an evening focused on academic work and progress, if you wish to see your son/daughter’s form tutor to talk through pastoral or other non-academic issues, you will need to make an appointment to see them on another occasion.

If you are attending the first session and you have a child from another year group still in School, please make arrangements for them to attend Tea and Prep where they can be supervised while you are talking to members of staff.

In order to give you information about the curriculum and details of the options process, Mr Taylor will speak briefly at both 4.15p.m. and 5.45p.m. in room C, the first classroom down the corridor from the Hall. Mr James who will be taking over as Headmaster from Mr Taylor in September will also be attending.

Carol Fellows, the Careers Adviser from Youth Direction will also be available to speak to.

For your information, a copy of the Options Booklet is enclosed with this letter. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at the School if you require any further information.

Yours faithfully

Mrs C Blyth
