Beyond 14 Making Choices
Your son or daughter is now in the second term of Year 9 at Caterham and we are approaching the time when we need to consider students’ course programme for Key Stage 4, Years 10 and 11.
Students will continue to study some compulsory subjects – English, Maths, Science, PE and PSHCE/RE.
Although this reduces the number of choices available to students, there are still important decisions to be made about which subjects should be studied over the next two years, the learning style of the students in preparation for future careers and adult life in general. We have a range of courses that respond to the varied needs and aptitudes of our students.
For a number of students an academic path is appropriate, for other students a more practical pathway or a mixture of both will allow students to realise their potential and be successful.
The purpose of the booklet is to outline details related to the Key Stage 4 programme and the subjects in particular, as well as give information about the consultation procedure involved.
