Options Evening


Options Evening will be held on Thursday 24th January 2019 from 6:30-9pm. 

The purpose of this evening is to help students acquire the information necessary to decide on the right courses for them in Years 10 and 11. All option subjects will be represented.

We recommend that students talk to as many members of staff as possible about their choices and plans for the future, not only in Year 10 and 11 but Sixth Form and beyond.


The Welcome and Presentation will take place in the Main Hall. Due to restriction of space there will be two sessions as shown below.

Tutor groups attending the Welcome and Presentation at 6:30pm

  • AJO, CBU, DMC, DVW and ETH/NG

Tutor groups attending the Welcome and Presentation at 7:15pm
