Step 2: Question and Answer sessions

In the week commencing Monday 3 May 2021, teachers will talk about the specialism available to you in Key Stage 4 during your usual timetabled lessons. This is your chance to ask questions about curriculum content, qualifications and extra-curricular opportunities.

Step 3: Drop-in sessions

In the week commencing Monday 10 May 2021, there will be ‘drop-in’ sessions with senior staff during break times.  If you have specific queries about your choices or would like additional advice or guidance, you can seek it here.

Step 4: Making decisions

After speaking with teachers, asking questions and reading information about subject specialisms, you will be ready to make decisions.
