Year 9 - GCSE Subjects Fair

A reminder to Year 9 parents that the GCSE Subjects Fair is on Thursday 23 February (Sports Hall, 6.00pm-8.00pm). This is an opportunity for pupils and their parents to speak with all Heads of Department who will be available to offer subject information and to discuss pupils’ suitability for GCSE courses. All parents will have received a copy of the GCSE Options Guide and we would advise reading this with your sons in advance of the Subject Fair (the guide is also available here). Pupils will need to make their final GCSE subject choices shortly afterwards and further details will be sent in due course.
