Year 8 Options Evening Wednesday 7th March 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 8 Options Evening – Wednesday 7th March 2018

As you are aware, Goffs School runs a three year Key Stage 4 in order to maximise your son/daughter’s chance of success in their GCSE or equivalent examinations.  To facilitate this, your son/daughter will be finishing Key Stage 3 at the end of Year 8 this year.  Your child therefore is about to make the first major curriculum decision in their school life; namely what options to take during Years 9, 10 and 11.  

I am therefore writing to invite you to our Year 8 Options Evening which will be on Wednesday 7th March 2018.  The evening will take place at 6pm in the Hall, and we would request that you sit with your son/daughter to share information.  Please remember that parking is limited so do allow plenty of time to park in the main school car park. 

I would like to stress that this is a very important evening due to a number of national curriculum changes that will affect your son/daughter.  These will be explained during the evening and you should therefore make every effort to attend.  During the course of the evening you will also receive the Key Stage 4 Prospectus and an explanation of the Options process.  In addition, Heads of Departments and the Herts Careers Service will be available to offer advice and give you more details about courses in the Subject Fair.

I look forward to meeting you on the 7th March.

Yours sincerely

Mark Ellis
