This is an important time for Year 9 pupils as they prepare to move into the last two years in school. At this time, pupils should find themselves asking some deep and important questions about their future and about themselves.
The GCSE and other courses we offer are aimed at helping pupils meet national demands and expectations, whilst also providing a breadth and variety of subjects that will engage and interest young people. As a school, we also tailor the curriculum so that the subjects we teach, and the manner in which they are taught, can be different for different groups of pupils to enable them to reach their target grades. This booklet should help parents to be fully informed and involved in the discussion about the courses on offer to pupils.
