Welcome to Year 9
I would like to welcome you and your daughter to Year 9 at Presdales School. This is a very exciting year as students will be starting to learn material for their GCSE’s in subjects such as Science, and will have chosen the rest of the subjects they wish to study at GCSE level by the end of the year. It is important that they think carefully about these subjects and your daughters’ form tutor and I are here to help guide them in these choices.
As workload and quantity of homework increases it is important that students work to their very best and focus on their studies. We ask that student’s put in their best effort in lessons to help maintain their progress. As well as academic achievement we also promote students to enjoy all of the extra-curricular clubs and events available to them, including the opportunity to visit Germany.
