Big Decisions!

Year 9 Options Week

We want our students to make the best choice they can for their Year 10 subjects; in order to support this Salford City Academy held its Year 9 Options Week, which began on the 11th January 2016 and students benefited from:

  • Options Assemblies – students heard all about the process and specialist leaders provided overviews of the subjects on offer
  • Year 9 Parents and Options Evening – meetings with subject staff regarding student progress and further options advice available from careers staff
  • Options Taster Day – students sampled a unit project and gained a realistic view of specific courses of interest with a choice of taster sessions including art, construction, childcare, food and nutrition, music, business studies, computing, drama, RS, hair and beauty, citizenship
  • Options Fair – students had the opportunity to talk to subject staff as well as students currently on courses
  • Parents and Students Options Meetings – discussions with an SLT member,  Inclusion Manager or Head of Year
  • One-to-one Connexions Meetings – optional meeting for impartial guidance with a Connexions advisor

 Options forms can then be submitted and students do have until Friday 29th January to hand them in.

 Year 8 Options Week begins on Monday 25th January 2016!
