Y8 Specialism Choice
As you will remember, we wrote to you in February to explain that your child would continue to study a wider range of subjects in Y9 to help them make well informed choices for their GCSE options courses in Y10. It is important to note that our core offer of Maths, English, and Science will still be underpinned with GCSE principles and assessment objectives thus providing students with a strong foundation for Key stage 4 GCSE study.
We did however explain that your child would make 1 option choice and they will choose to specialise in either History or Geography in Y9; they will study 2 lessons of their specialist subject and 1 lesson of the other, meaning that they could still choose to study both History and Geography in Y10 if they would like to. Our intention was that this option would have been made at parents evening in May, however, due to the current COVID-19 situation, we were unable to hold this event.
As a result, we are asking students to make their choice and submit their preference for specialising in History or Geography via the google form that has been emailed to all students today, or for any students who don’t have access to their Gmail at home you can complete the Google form below
We ask that all forms are completed by Friday 26th June and we will discuss student choices with them when we see them face to face in September.
Finally, we believe that the partnership approach that exists between home and school remains the key to our team’s success and will ensure the best outcomes for our students.
Many thanks for your continued support.
