Year 8 Options EveningLast week we held our Year 8 options evening which again was a great success with nearly every student in Year 8 coming in to discuss their GCSE option choices. Thank you to all of the parents that attended the event.
As well as staff, representatives from every curriculum area and subject in the College; also in attendance were the Year 8 Pastoral staff, our Key Stage 4 Raising Standards Leader, the Sixth Form staff, our SJH Careers advisor, the Careers South West advisor, University representatives and our Outdoor and Adventurous Activities team.
Following a presentation, students and parents were able to have detailed conversations with our staff and representatives from other organisations to help make the GCSE choices and to inform the pathways they will follow as the students go beyond Year 11.
I would like to thank everyone involved in organising and attending the event and remind parents that the options forms need to be in by 28th January. We will endeavour to communicate the GCSE option allocations to students as soon as we can.
