Re: Year 8 Options Process 2018
Following the return of the students’ options preference forms, we have been looking closely at the options which students have been wishing to choose. During any options process, it is always unfortunate that one or two courses are unable to run, due to a lack of choice from students, and these often change from year to year.
Due to this, we have decided to re-issue students with an options preference form on Wednesday 21st February, and ask that these are returned by the end of the day on Friday 2nd March.
This second form will allow us to create the final option blocks to allow the majority of students to study the courses that they would like to do for their futures, and which are most suitable for them. This allows most students to maintain their selection if they wish, while allowing students who selected a non-running course to have a first and second choice preference for the created option blocks.
From the week beginning the 5th March, we will be able to issue the final blocks to students and will be writing to parents with times where we will be meeting with students to discuss, of which parents are welcome to attend to support the students throughout.
If you have any questions regarding the process, please do not hesitate to contact us, or feel free to discuss at the parents evening on Tuesday 27th February.
