Year 8 Taster Day 2019

What are my options?

An important and exciting day today for Year 8 today as they take part in this year’s taster day.  This day aims to provide context and insight as Year 8 students prepare to take an important next step in their learning journeys.  Today involves a series of specially tailored workshops and lessons, giving food for thought and support to Year 8 students before they make their GCSE options choices.  The format of the day involves taking part in a combination of subject tasters.  Teachers are also supported by Post 16 students, on hand to share their own experiences of making their GCSE choices. The aim is for all participants to leave the day better informed as to how GCSE’s can impact upon their futures; their A-level and Higher Education options, as well as insight as to where GCSE subjects could take them in their future course options and careers.
