Options Process Timeline 2021-2023

Dear Parents,

We are entering that exciting point in the academic year once again, where students in Years 9 and 11 start to contemplate the next steps in their learning journey; the options process.

The options process plays an integral part in our mission to inspire and empower our learners to succeed in fulfilling their individual potential. To that effect, Ms Hine and Mr Lemon, (Head of Year 9 and Year 11 respectively), have been busy creating a rigorous and well-informed programme to enable this. It is our intention to ensure that your child has the support they need to make these important decisions, with understanding and assurance. The timeline below outlines key information that we hope you will find useful at this stage.

We look forward to sharing more information very soon. In the meantime, please be encouraged to reach out to Ms Hine ([email protected]) or Mr Lemon ([email protected]) should you have any immediate queries or would like to learn more about any of the items listed in the timeline.

 

Kind regards,

Peter Roberts ([email protected]

Deputy Head of Secondary (Academic)
