Guided Choices

The 2019 Guided Choices Booklet has now been handed out to current Year 8 students for their consideration. After the Year 8 Guided Choices Evening (Tuesday 5th Feb 2019) our students will go through a process including meetings with their form tutor and the opportunity to participate in some taster sessions. This will culminate with students handing in their final choices form by Tuesday 19th March 2019.

Please view a copy of the Guided Choices Booklet here and return the form located in the rear of the booklet.
