Thank you to all the parents and students who have handed in their Year 9 Option forms. It’s good to see how much thought students have put into their choices.

On the subject of Options, as mentioned in a previous Newsletter, students will be able to choose some of their Options in Year 8. We are holding a Year 8 Parent Options Evening on Wednesday 28th March and students will also be able to attend taster sessions so they have an idea of what the subjects involve. Further information will follow.

Well done to all the Year 11 students who completed and passed their Finance qualification this week. We have a number of exam related events in the calendar next week including GCSE Art (Wednesday 21st March) and GCSE photography (Friday 23rd March) preparation days for Year 11. Year 11 GCSE food students will also be doing their practicals on Thursday 22nd March, so good luck to them.

Following on from their success last year, we have been holding special Year 11 exam preparation family learning sessions for parents and students. These continue with an RE workshop on Tuesday 20th March at 4.45pm. You should have received a letter about the event.

Well done to the BBC School Report team who did a fantastic job of producing their report. You can read more about it in this Newsletter.

Have a lovely weekend.
