Year 9 students given support to plan for the future

Year 9 students were given practical help and support to make the right subject choices and set them on the path to future success.

As part of the annual Course Choice event, Yr 9 students got hands-on experience of a range of GSCE classes and picked up advice about succeeding in the workplace from Jason Guy, who runs recruitment company First4Staff.

Students returned to school with their parents during the evening where they heard two presentations about the important process of choosing the right courses for Key Stage 4. Displays were also set up to showcase what various courses have to offer and how they are able to help students fulfil their ambitions in future careers, including travel & tourism, construction and art.

Year 9 Manager, Mr C Rhodes, said: “The event is all about helping our students plan for the future.

“This is the first big life choice many of our students will make and our Course Choice event gives them a glimpse of what each course has to offer to put them on the road to success.”
