Year 9 Options Evening

Dear Parent

As part of the GCSE options process at Caroline Chisholm School, we are holding an Options Information Evening on Thursday 21st February 2013. The evening is an opportunity for students and parents to find out more about the choices available and how the process works. The evening is in addition to the information your child will have already received through an assembly, and they will also take part in a Careers Day on 27th March 2013, where they will have an opportunity to explore their options further.

Due to the large number of students in Year 9, the evening will split into two sessions. The first will commence at 6:30pm in the main hall and will be followed by the opportunity to speak to subject leaders about individual subject choices. The second session will follow the same format but will commence at 7:30pm in the main hall. There will also be an opportunity to discuss any additional queries you may have with our pastoral, support and careers staff. Please either return the reply slip below to Student Services or email office@ccs.northants.sch.uk, stating which session you would like to attend.

Please note that Parents Evening will follow Options Evening- the dates are enclosed below. This will be an opportunity to talk to the individual subject teachers about your child’s progress and achievement this year and their suitability for the range of GCSE or equivalent courses available next year.
