In the months following their passage, X23 students have been looking at the ‘seven up’ TV programme and considering what and who they want to be, both in terms of their academic scholarship and the continued growth of their character.
X23 students are now at an important point in Year 9, where they will decide upon pathways of study and practice to compliment our core offer at GCSE.
As part of this process, students will be visiting some of the X22 and X21 sessions in the coming week and considering what is best for them in terms of their Common Mission of being both university-ready and ready for success in the modern world.
X23 students will consider the questions:
- What do I enjoy?
- What do I want to become?
- Where do I want to go?
We would like to invite X23 parents and families to an information evening on Tuesday 19th February, from 5.00pm until 6.30pm. This will start at XP East in the performance area. During this time you will hear from Mr Sprakes about how students can compliment their core studies as part of their Common Mission. We will also discuss the criteria by which together we will consider which pathway is best for your son or daughter. For example, some students may study:
- with a focus on their core subjects making sure that these are secure
- an additional GCSE course
- an additional technical qualification such as a BTEC or VCert
- an arts award
You will also be able to go with your son or daughter to specific sessions – run by our teachers and students – which will explain the nature of some of the pathways that we offer.
We look forward to seeing you at this important evening.
