Upper School Choices Evening
Thursday 17 March 2016
5:00pm – 8:00pm
Please arrive from 4:45pm for a 5:00pm Welcome Presentation

In order to support our Year 9 students at this vital time in choosing subjects to be studied in the Upper School in Years 10 & 11, we would like to welcome you and your child to an ‘Upper School Choices Evening’. This event will be held on Thursday 17 March 2016.

There will be the opportunity to talk to Heads of Faculty and members of subject staff about the range of subjects that are being offered in Years 10 and 11. There will also be subject presentations taking place from 5:30 pm until 8.00 pm. It is recommended that you attend this important event where you can talk to teachers about the range of courses which Year 9 students can have the opportunity to choose to study in the Upper School. On the evening you will receive a welcome flyer which will inform you where our subject staff will be based and which subjects will have presentations which you will be able to attend at the allotted times during the evening. Refreshments will be available throughout the evening.

Your child will receive an ‘Upper School Choices Booklet’ from his or her Form Tutor during registration on the week beginning Monday 14th March. This booklet will help you and your child to finalise his or her subject choices for Years 10 & 11. Your child has been guided into being able to choose a particular range of subjects to study in Years 10 & 11.and the booklet will detail this. The choice of subjects that your child has been guided into has been selected because of the information we have about them. This is the way in which your child studies and learns and the performance data for your child. Your child has been guided into the most appropriate choice of subjects where the course content studied and structure of assessment will lead your child to the best possible outcomes at the end of Year 11.

If you would like an appointment to meet with the Year 9 Team or a member of the Leadership Team to answer any questions you may have regarding subject choices for your child, please either email Ann Smith on asmith@heatonmanor.net, or contact her by telephone at the number below and she will respond to your request. Please note that all choice forms are to be completed and handed in to tutors by 23 March 2015.

Our advice to students is:

At Heaton Manor we are looking forward to working with your child in the Upper School and to the excellent results they may achieve at the end of Year 11.
