Year 9 Options Evening

  • Saddleworth School High Street Uppermill, England, OL3 6BU United Kingdon (map)

An important evening for all of our Year 9 students. Mr Watson, Associate Headteacher will explain the Options programme for 2017.

Core subjects will be present during the talk in the hall and will explain how their subject will be assessed.

Following this there will be an opportunity to visit other subject areas that are being considered to find out a little bit more and help inform that important choice.

It is vital that the option choices are well considered and are the students final decisions. To help support this, there is an extended period before the Option selection needs to be made.

Within this period of time they will receive their written report and have their Parents Consultation Evening. This will allow you a chance to gain a real insight into their best possible option combinations and to discuss your child personally with their class teacher.

  • Friday 24th February - Reports go home
  • Monday 27th February - GOLDT Parents Consultation Evening
  • Tuesday 7th March - NAYVE Parents Consultation Evening
  • ***- Option Selection Forms submission Open
  • ***- Option Selection Forms submission Close

Options are not awarded on a first come basis. All options received by the deadline will be allocated before any submitted late so it is important they are received on time.

Where option combinations are not possible, contact will be made home with you direct to discuss this.
