The application window for GCSE Preferences is March 6th – 10th
Year 9 GCSE Preferences process 2023
As we are now in the spring term, this always signals the time for Year 9 students to start thinking about their GCSE preferences for next year.
We started the process in the autumn term with the parent information evening and the next stage of the process is for Year 9 to have an assembly to talk them through what they have to do and how they should make their choices. This assembly will take place on February 8th. There will also be parents’ evenings on 9th February for 9X and 23rd February for 9Y.
Course Counselling: each student will be seen by a senior member of staff to discuss which subjects they think they would like to study and if those choices fit with any future plans they may be forming. The “Course Counselling” window is 20th February – 3rd March.
Parents are invited to read the PowerPoint presentations and watch the subject videos below with their child in order to learn more about what each subject looks and feels like if studied for GCSE. Each presentation and video has been created by the department of each subject.
Please click on the links to the PowerPoint presentations below to download them and click on the videos below to view them.
If you have any general questions about the process, then please email the school firstname.lastname@example.org for my attention.
