Year 9 Options Evening
Dear Parents and Carers
Year 9 Key Stage 4 Options Evening, Tuesday 11th February 2020
I am writing to invite you to attend our Year 9 Options Evening on Tuesday 11th February 2020. The evening has been arranged to help you begin the process of considering which subjects your son/daughter will take in Years 10 and 11. Our aim is to give you an overview and understanding of the different courses on offer. You will receive the Options Booklet at the end of January and your child’s Year 9 Spring report on 7th February, allowing you and your son/daughter to have some initial discussions about appropriate options choices. Please read through the Options Booklet carefully before the evening.
The event will run between 5.30pm and 7.00pm. There will be an opportunity to talk to subject-specific staff and to see student work and examination materials. We also ask that you attend one of the short central presentations in the Sports Hall. For your convenience, and to spread out the numbers, we have arranged for two presentations to take place: one at 5.30pm and one at 6.00pm.
Please note that our Careers Adviser, Mrs O’Connor, will also be present on the evening for any general Careers advice.
The Options Choices forms need to be returned to the Student Reception post-box no later than Monday, 2nd March.
We hope you will be able to attend this important evening, and look forward to seeing you. If you have any queries about the options process in general, please do not hesitate to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr J. Mallett
