Students also spent time in GCSE taster sessions to allow them to envisage what it would be like studying those subjects at GCSE/iGCSE level. Students were able to choose which lessons they attended (6 in total) and staff members designed lessons that would allow students to understand the requirements of that subject at Key Stage 4. In our student survey a student said: ‘I found the GCSE Taster sessions good; they gave an insight of what the GCSEs will be like in the future.’
As Year 9 students are busy deciding which GCSE/iGCSE subjects to take, we also created this video to assist in the decision making process. This video features the thoughts, feelings and experiences of KS4 students with regards to the different ‘option’ subjects. Students will be able to gain a ‘pupil perspective’ of the different ‘option’ subjects from watching this video.
Finally, thank you to all the Year 9 parents for the continued support with the ‘Options Pathway’. We have one final event before the 12 February deadline: the one to one careers interviews which will take place on Friday 25th January. We look forward to meeting you to discuss your child’s future.
