...and next week (on Tuesday 6:00pm) will be the turn of the Year 9 students and parents to be introduced to the IGCSE Curriculum. The students have some important decisions to make, so it is vital that they have all the information they need to make good decisions. Apart from the Curriculum Guides and activities in PSHE lessons, teachers are talking to their classes about their subject and answering questions that students have.
Parents have a very important role to play in the process. Thank you for being a ‘sounding board’ as your child thinks through their choices. Please do encourage your child to keep an open mind to all the possibilities – not jumping in too quickly and not choosing subjects for silly reasons such as ‘because my friend is doing it’. Please do make sure your child is choosing because they enjoy a subject, because they are good at the subject or it fits with their future aspirations.
This week has certainly been busy in school, with the visit to the Secondary Library of the multi award-winning writer Curtis Jobling and out of school, with the Year 10 and Year 12 expeditions to Tanzania, a MUN group off to Switzerland and a Theatre trip by the Polish Department.
