Year 9 Options: Taster Day

Year 9 Options Afternoon

Over the next few weeks, you will be making some important decisions that will not only shape your timetable for the next two years but will also heavily influence any future academic study and employment prospects.

In order to help you make as informed a decision as possible, we have created an Options Afternoon for you.  As part of the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to opt for ‘taster’ lessons of subjects that you will not have studied before so as to give you an insight into what studying those subjects might be like.  You will be able to sample 2 subjects from the 6 subjects that are on offer on the afternoon.

All of you will have different subjects you would like to sample, so to try and personalise the afternoon, we would like you to tell us which of the taster sessions you are most interested in attending.  On the Subject Taster Session Form, you will be asked to rank the sessions in order of preference (1=most preferred) so as to help us create your timetable for the afternoon.

We cannot guarantee that you will get all of your first preferences but we will do our best!  Equally, simply expressing a preference for only 2 of the sessions will not guarantee that you will get these choices.

You need to submit your form no later than:

Thursday 11 February 2021

If you do not meet the deadline, we will select which lessons/sessions you attend.
