Year 9 Preferences

We are delighted to welcome you to our Year 9 Preferences information page.  Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions, we are unable to host an event in person to launch the process.  However, we hope you will find that the information here answers any questions you may have.

Please begin by reading the letter that was sent to Year 9 parents and carers on Tuesday 9 February. Further to this letter, there are three key resources on this page to help students, parents and carers understand the Year 9 Preferences process.

The remote Year 9 Parent Consultation on Tuesday 23 February will provide an opportunity to discuss subject preferences with their teachers. Following the Parent Consultation, please complete the form to indicate your child’s subject preferences.  The link to the form can be found in the Year 9 Preferences letter. The deadline for the completion of the form is Friday 26 February.

Preferences Presentation
Firstly, please watch this introductory presentation that explains the process to support students to make informed, thoughtful and mature decisions about their subject preferences for Year 10 and 11.

Preferences Booklet
Secondly, we are pleased to share with you the Year 9 Preferences Booklet 2021 that contains further key information about the process and about the subjects that students will study.
