Year 9 Options

Your child has now reached an important stage in their school career as this represents their first opportunity to influence the curriculum they will follow. At The Cottesloe School we offer both an excellent core curriculum and a very flexible system of option choices.

There are, of course, a variety of reasons why a particular subject might be chosen and good advice can be gained from the subject teachers and form tutors in the first instance. Should you require assistance regarding Special Educational Needs please contact our SENDCo Miss Hibbert.

The reporting system currently used by the School gives an expectation of the level of attainment the student will make in each subject area; this in conjunction with the discussions held with staff at Parents Evening where parents were informed of their child’s progress toward their expectation, will enable students to make an accurate and informed decision on the best academic pathway.

Parents and students are encouraged and welcome to book a meeting to discuss the relevant academic pathway for the student, taking into account their prior attainment and interests. Please contact the School Reception to book a meeting, which are available during, and after, the school day - telephone: 01296 688264.
