Year 9 Options Day

By Fiona Wilkins - June 21st, 2024 | Posted in Article

Pupils in Year 9 took part in an options day where they had the chance to try out the different subjects that they will be able to choose going into Year 10. The subject specialist teachers put on taster sessions in Animal Care, Art, Barbering, Construction, DT, Hospitality, Mechanics, Music and Sport. Pupils really engaged in the sessions and were keen to try new subjects and talk about their options for the future.

Parents and carers were invited into an afternoon session and Mr Pemberton went through the process of choosing their options. They also heard from the subject specialist teachers and had an opportunity to ask questions about the subjects and the process.

Pupils were encouraged to talk to their families about the subjects they had enjoyed and career pathways they might be interested in.
