On 14 December, all Year 9 students were sent home with the letter attached below, which invites students and parents to an information evening on Thursday 5 January 2023. This is an important part of our programme of support, information and guidance for our Year 9 students, as they prepare for the start of their GCSE studies. This is what is typically known as students choosing their 'option' subjects for Year 10 and 11. It is an important decision for your child, as it will not only determine their timetable for the remainder of their school life at Outwood Normanby, but it will also guide their path of study post-16, and employment opportunities beyond.
To enable your child to make the very best decision, we are hosting an information evening for Year 9 parents/carers and students which we strongly encourage you to attend. This evening will begin promptly with a presentation at 5.00pm to discuss the options available and our Guided Pathways process. Parents and students will also be provided with an information booklet which explains our curriculum intent. After the presentation, you and your child will have the opportunity to meet with Heads of Department from each subject area to discuss information and guidance on the different courses available. We really hope to see you all on Thursday 5 January.You can now find copies of the parents' presentation and the information booklet below.
