Year 9 students spent a morning at the (I)GCSE Options Fair, exploring the variety of opportunities that they can select for their upcoming (I)GCSE timetables. Students, subject leaders, teachers and parents were all in attendance for the first time in three years! It was great to see so many parents on hand and engaging with their children’s learning. Starting with an informative assembly in the Theatre, students were given an overview of their options for the next academic year. It proved to be a good opportunity for students to learn about the subjects on offer and gain guidance about the options process, as well as advice on selecting their options.
The Options Fair followed the assembly, with students able to speak to subject leaders and staff from each subject. With booths set up throughout the Exhibition Hall, students could ask questions about the courses that interested them. This provided students with an in-depth understanding of the subjects and will help them to make informed decisions about their future academic paths. It was definitely encouraging to see our Year 9 students, and their parents, engaged and enthusiastic about their future educational journeys ahead!
