Year 9 Options Information 2022
As we approach the time of year when students begin to think about making their choices for Key Stage four options we would encourage you to watch and read through the information provided below. Students will begin to have discussions with their tutor regarding options and careers and working both in tutor time, taking advice in lessons but also receiving careers advice in Lessons for Life.
After half term there is a programme of events to help your child make informed decisions these include:
Careers Fair : 24th February
Year 9 Parents Evening: 3rd March
Year 9 Options Evening: 9th March
It is never too early to start thinking about what type of career might be of interest, the qualifications and subjects that might be helpful, and the subjects they enjoy and may be successful at. Please do not hesitate to start the conversation at home!
Virtual Careers Evening
To help with GCSE options selections, view the Great Baddow High School Virtual Careers Fair from 2021. We highly recommend you explore all the zones even the ones you never even thought to explore. Who knows, you may find the dream career path you never thought of. Further information regarding the scheduled Careers Fair for 2022 will be available in due course.
Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact either the subject teachers or Head of Year; Mrs Sargeant or Assistant Head of Year; Miss Derbridge.
We wish you all the best for this important process and assure you of our full commitment to ensuring the best advice and guidance to you and your child.
