Year 9 Parent Information

Your child is at an exciting and very important stage of their education here at Woolmer Hill School. Students in Year 9 are nearing the end of their Key Stage 3 phase and will very shortly begin thinking about possible post 16 options and career pathways. This process starts with thinking about which GCSE and vocational pathways your child may like to follow. Over the next few months, students and parents will receive plenty of support to enable them to make wise and informed option choices. 

Having established themselves within school life, Year 9 is a great time for students to branch out of their comfort zones and to try new things. As a school we offer diverse and varied opportunities to enable them to do this and hope that with your support we can encourage them all to take part. It is through these challenges that they will learn to be confident, to be independent and to be resilient and it is these important life skills that will set them up for the future. 

As students take further steps into their teenage years, we want to ensure that they make the best choices both academically and personally. We strongly believe that this can only happen with a partnership approach from parents and staff and encourage open dialogue between home and school. Please do contact myself or other key members of staff if you are in need of support with ensuring the best progress for your child.

Mr B Grindley, Head of Year 8
