Pastoral Care Year 9

Mr D. Murphy


Year 9 Overview

Year 9 is an exciting year for our students at Testwood School, as it challenges students to make decisions about their future with the options process. The year also continues to encourage students to make the most of the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities available and builds on the leadership opportunities started in Year 8.

Within the classroom students are reaching their last year of Key Stage 3 and are continuously challenged, encouraged and supported to enable them to make the expected progress and to reach their targets.

The options process enables students to discover and decide which GCSE subjects they wish to follow during Years 10 and 11. A comprehensive, guided and supported options programme is in place for all students and courses are available to suit all of our students. Information Evenings, taster days, leaflets and interviews give students and parents several opportunities to discuss and make what is a difficult but extremely important decision.

Our focus during the year is ‘the decisions you make are key to your future.’
