Year 8 Options Evening

Dear Parent / Carer

Year 8 Options Information Evening

I am writing to invite you to an information evening specifically aimed at parents of current Year 8 pupils who are shortly to make their option choices for the next academic year.  The event is taking place on Wednesday 18th January from 6.30pm to 8.00pm with short formal presentations taking place in the Salendine Hall and additional subject / careers information available in the High Hall.

The event is aimed at parents/carers and not Year 8 pupils.

The focus of the event is to provide you with an overview of the options process, a brief outline of the careers guidance offered at Key Stage 4 and to give an opportunity to collect information from the various subject areas on offer to your child.  There will be two elements to the evening with the formal part consisting of short presentations in the Salendine Hall at 6:30pm (approximately 30 minutes) followed by an informal opportunity for you to visit the subject areas and Further Education stands in the High Hall to collect information of particular interest to you (7:00pm – 8:00pm).

Heads of Department along with representatives from Greenhead College, Huddersfield New College, Kirklees College, Huddersfield University and Apprenticeship providers will be in attendance on the evening but it is not our intention to engage in individual conversations about specific children at this time.  The focus is more about informing our parents of what is on offer in order to assist the discussion process that will follow with your child.  There is a parents’ consultation evening planned for Thursday 2nd March at which opportunities exist to discuss individual cases with the relevant staff.

In order to plan the space as efficiently as possible I would appreciate it if you could return the reply slip ASAP.

Yours sincerely

Mr D J Milnes

Assistant Head Teacher
