Year 9 Options Evening
On 7th November we hosted our Year Nine Preliminary Options Evening. During such a key year in your child's education, it is essential that they are aware of the importance of their upcoming GCSE options choices. We have begun the transition process earlier this year and will begin our raising aspirations programme this half term, in order to give you and your child the chance to fully explore and consider their future aspirations and careers pathways.
There was a presentation in the Dennis Potter Theatre by the Principal and Vice Principal about the options process at Ark Burlington Danes Academy this year and information provided on the transition your child will be taking from KS3 to KS4, the challenges ahead and what you can do to support them.
The presentation used is attached for your information. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to be in contact with Ms Morris.
Please also save the date on Thursday 23rd January 2020 from 4.30pm. This will be our full Options Evening where you will be able to meet with Heads of Subjects and explore the courses available in full with your child, see the pathways booklets and prepare final course choices for 2020-2022.
