Guided Choices forms to be posted in the box in the Library
In addition, careers information, advice and guidance has been the
theme during Year 8 3Rs lessons.
Once all the forms have been collated, the school will then start to process
them and your child will be informed by their tutor what option choices they
have been given. This will be towards the end of the summer term. Our
aim is to give them the subject choices they want.
We request that pupils do not keep asking the teachers, tutors or Heads of
Learning about their choices as this is a fairly slow process and it will take
some time before we are able to confirm the options.
Where possible we will try to ensure that every pupil receives his or her first
choices. However, on rare occasions this may not be possible, then they
may be offered a second choice subject. If there are issues regarding their
choices, you will be contacted at the earliest opportunity.
Pupils are able to discuss changes to their options, especially if they have
not received a first choice. We allow all pupils two weeks at the start of
Year 9 to make changes if they are very unhappy with their subject choices.
This is rare and they are only able to move to subjects where there are still
places. We advise that they ensure that the subjects chosen are ones they
are truly keen to study.
