Adobe Reader Document (PDF) Annual Year 9 Curriculum Choices Process - Spring Term 2014

Year 9 students are now approaching a very important stage of their education, where key decisions need to be made. It is important that students think carefully about these choices as they will have a direct impact on later decisions about potential Level 3 courses and apprenticeships, and ultimately about university routes (should that be their preference), and of course the world of work.

Further information and links to useful documents are in the attached PDF file.

A Word From Our Headteacher

"You never get bored working in schools – articles in our half termly newsletters give a little glimpse of school life at Baysgarth. No two days are ever the same, whether in lessons, on the sports field, on the stage or on school trips. There is the annual cycle of events driven by the school calendar such that now the exam season is upon us and we wish our students every success in their GCSE and A level exams. Many of these youngsters will soon be leaving to continue their studies at college or university and our best wishes go with them for a happy and successful future."
