Our Year 9 Pastoral Achievement Coordinator is Donna Brown and our Assistant Year Leader is NIcola Roberts.
Year 9 is a vitally important year because students begin to think about their futures and, towards the end of the academic year, will make decisions about their Wider Courses.
It is important that pupils fully immerse themselves in all that their subjects have to offer this year, get involved in as many extra-curricular opportunities as possible and attend Study Support sessions as, in the spring of Year 9, students will be guided towards choosing their courses for GCSE study.
Year 9 is also a great time to think about taking on extra responsibilities around the college, as this can look great on a future college application. Students can take up positions in the library for example or in Year 7 tutor groups where their help and assistance is always valued.
In Year 9 you will be rewarded for excellent punctuality, attendance and tracking through our PAT system. You can win gift vouchers; an invite to an Attendance Party; free trips and I Pods amongst other prizes for working hard, attending every day, being on time and being motivated to learn.
Year 9 have also been on trips this year and have particularly enjoyed the opportunity to go to the theatre to see The Diary of Ann Frank as part of their Humanities study. This was a very emotional performance. We also get to go on reward trips to theme parks for improved tracking and good behaviour at the end of term.
Overall, you all love Year 9s a great place to learn, make friends and have fun.
