Year 9 Next Steps

This is an important and exciting time for Year 9 pupils as they begin to consider the next steps in their educational journey – their Key Stage 4 courses.
Pupils have had a series of virtual Loom assemblies informing them of the different GCSE and Btec subjects available to them and our Next Steps booklet that outlines in detail the Next Steps process, as well as providing further information about each subject.

Monday 21st February marks the beginning of our ‘Next Steps Week’, during which students and parents will have an opportunity to talk to teachers about the subjects they will be studying next year and to ask any questions they have about what to expect in Year 10.

Please refer to the Next Steps Booklet for any further information.
