Welcome to Year 9
Dear Parents / Guardians,
I would like to welcome you and your daughter to Year 9 at Presdales School. It is my privilege to be the Head of Year to a cohort of students who demonstrated real courage and resilience over the last 12 months.
This is a very exciting and important year for Year 9 students as they will be starting to learn material for their GCSEs in subjects such as Science, and will be choosing the other GCSE subjects they wish to study in Year 10 and 11. It is vital that your daughter thinks carefully about these choices and the Year 9 pastoral team will be on hand to help guide through this process.
As workload and quantity of homework increases it is important that your daughter focuses on her studies and tries her best in all lessons. I would also encourage your daughter to enjoy the variety of extra-curricular clubs and events available to her which will, hopefully, include some trips this year.
Our school value for the year is EQUALITY and together through the year in assemblies, form times etc. we will investigate what this means for the school community and its members.
The Year 9 pastoral team is shown below and has changed slightly.
9AS Curie – Mrs L Harmer – email@example.com
9EF Windsor – Miss Fentiman – firstname.lastname@example.org
9JC Pankhurst – Mrs J Crane (formerly Miss Clifton) – email@example.com
9RM Parks – Miss R Murrell – firstname.lastname@example.org
As a team we are very much looking forward to supporting your daughter during this next step in her school journey. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Here’s to a great year!
Mrs Jane Fry
Head of Year 9
