Y8 Options Evening Information
Re: Y8 Options Evening Thursday 20th April 2017 5:00pm – 8:00pm
31st March 2017
I am writing to confirm that following the closure of the consultation we will be changing the curriculum so Year 8 students will take their GCSE courses at the start of Year 9. This means we now enter a 6-week programme of events where Year 8 students will be asked to consider their options and make a choice of 4 subjects they would like to study for the remaining 3 years at Hazel Grove High School.
The first of these events is our Options Evening. We would formally like to invite all Year 8 parents and carers to join us on Thursday 20th April from 5pm – 8pm, however, you are not required to stay for the full time. There will be a talk in the Main Hall at the times listed below. This is an opportunity for you to meet with subject leaders to find out more about the courses offered.
Times of Talks
5:30pm – Parents/Carers of students in Brunel & Da Vinci Houses
6:30pm – Parents/Carers of students in Fibonacci and Nightingale Houses
Thank you in particular to those parents/carers who have written to me with messages of support for this proposal. I will address all concerns raised in correspondence during the presentation on the 20th April. Thank you also to those parents/carers who attended the Parent Forum last week, I appreciate your support.
We believe this is the right thing to do for our students and look forward to starting the process with them after the Easter break. Thank you again for your support.
