As your sons will be entering Year 9 next year, for the first time they will have some choice over their pattern of study for Years 9 and 10.
Over Years 9 and 10, apart from the mandatory subjects, students study two additional subjects, commonly referred to as ‘electives.’
- The booklet in the first link below outlines the pattern of study that the students undertake over Years 9 and 10, including the elective subjects available.
- The Subject Selection College web link below offers further information on each course, via a set of presentation slides.
During Week 9, on Tuesday, 21 June, students and parents will have the opportunity to attend subject selection presentations in Kenny Classrooms from 6pm-7pm, where they will learn more about courses in which they are interested, and have the opportunity to ask Heads of Department or delegates any questions.
The subject selection process will be completed online early next term. Details on how to do this process will be sent out closer to the time.
The most important thing is that students select elective subjects that they will enjoy. These are important decisions to make, as they will influence the staffing and resourcing decisions the College has to make for the 2023 timetable.
