Endeavour, Persevere, Achieve

Year 9

A Message to Year 9 from Head of Year - Miss Tolan

It gives me great pleasure to continue with this cohort in to Year 9; a cohort where students have gone above and beyond to achieve personal success in Year 8 in various accomplishments.

As the oldest students in Key Stage 3, Year 9s are now seen as role models to the lower school. I hope that that they take this opportunity to inspire the students in the lower years whilst persevering in their own endeavours both academically and socially.

As they progress through the year, they will be faced with the opportunity to choose their individual ‘Options’ which will decide the GCSE courses they study in Key Stage 4. In the approach to Options, students should ensure they invest in their education by engaging all in subject areas in order to make a mature and informed selection of courses.

As a year group, we will persevere to show: Personal Excellence, Respect and Friendship to our peers, Inspiration to others, Determination and Courage and Equality.

I look forward to another successful year ahead.

Miss Tolan
